I remember the first time I was pregnant at Christmas time.  Suffice it to say that pregnancy doesn’t agree with me, and I really felt Mary’s pain.  Who in the world would make a 9-month pregnant woman get on a donkey and ride for days just to be counted? But, our vision of Christmas is so peaceful and wonderful.  In a cave, shepherds and angels around, and filled with peace and joy.  The travel, the soldiers, the crowds – all forgotten for a brief while.  There would be much to do, and many trials along the way, but for this one moment, we stop and see the breaking through.  Take a moment in this crazy season.  It’s getting busier by the minute.  Look in and see.
