Again my story (below) has stolen some of the things I was going to say to introduce this week’s theme, and works its way from sacrifice to simplicity.
The simplicity of the First Christmas is part of what endears the ‘story’ to us–a non-descript couple, a baby in a manger, shepherds running all over the place all excited…
Sometimes our mind & spirit need to rest from ‘weighty matters’, and just dwell on simple things. And a lot of times we make things more complicated than they need to be.
After all, you can have too much of almost anything. So I’m really looking forward to talking about simple things this week!
