This season of waiting known as Advent is almost over. Only a few more days remain in the year. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step or so they say. I myself am starting out a new journey of my own. This season of waiting has been a long one reading Howard Thurman’s The Mood of Christmas has been a great reminder of what’s left to do in this world. Thurman’s poem ” The Work of Christmas” will be a focus for me in the coming year. See the featured image if you’d like to read it.
