I enjoy traveling, especially when someone else does the driving. Being a passenger is far less stressful. I like to watch the scenery, wonder where everyone is headed, and track our progress on a roadmap … when I’m not sleeping that is. Riding in a car makes me drowsy. I can nod off coming home from getting groceries. So most trips for me are pleasurable and restful.

Tomorrow, we’ll travel to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph. You can prepare for the journey by reading and mediating on Luke 2:8-20.

See you in a twinkling,

P. S. I didn’t forget about the painting. Today’s meditation didn’t render itself well as part of the painting for this week. I’ll add something tomorrow. Blessings.
