The star that sheds just enough light so that we can take one more step and then we must look to the star again.
So like our lives that we, too, live in exile and fear, but also in HOPE.
So emblematic of the strangeness of Christianity; its inconcongruities and contradictions.
Never what we think its going to be, never what we think we want it to be.
Always a fresh twist, a new pain, a new joy.
Always a God whose ways are not our ways.
Always, just when we think we’ve found a foothold,,,
The order to flee to Egypt.
May your 2012 be filled with daily, wonderful. and glorious epiphanies of God’s extravagant love for you.
