For those of you that visit my personal blog...Ginger's Journey...you know I talk a lot about journeys...I think almost everything in life is a journey of one kind or another...some are detours, deadends, or wrong turns but all in all the metaphor of a journey still holds. And so I will share with you my thoughts about the Journey to Christmas...

Christmas isn't a holiday, or a day, or even an event...it's a frame of mind. We journey to Christmas repeatedly and each journey takes us closer to the real essence of Christmas if we open our hearts to it.

Sometimes I wonder about the first Christmas and the people that traveled the path to Christ and Christmas...without hesitation. Would I have been brave enough to leave the flocks and follow a star to a baby in a manger? Would I have even recognized the star in the sky?

As the world rushes by faster and faster...the journey is still there...travel it slowly, enjoy the essence of this time worn tradition, put your feet on the path to Christmas and know that others have traveled it before you...and behind you there are more that are just beginning.
