Twelve day Baltic adventure, round trip Copenhagen, Denmark...
I’ve been caught in heavy traffic a few times the last few days and each time I remind myself how lucky I am that my commute to work is a one-minute walk through the woods. On occasion I might have to stop for a deer or a squirrel, but it’s rare and they usually clear out rather quickly. It got me to thinking, however, about travel during this holiday season. Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem. I don’t think they had to worry about traffic until they hit the Jerusalem beltway, but they certainly had the threat of being attacked by robbers, the un-comfortableness of riding on a donkey while nine months pregnant, the worry about lodging and food and all the things that still can make traveling a less than desirable experience. They make me think of how we should be extra grateful for those who take the effort to travel to be with loved ones this Christmas.
