Amidst much busyness these next several days, take time to look for a sign.
Someone once offered a reflection about how we see only a glimpse now of what we shall one day experience fully when the kingdom comes.
"We have been given a sign, and in the strength of it we can walk in darkness and reach in hope.
The sign can be a visible sign, like a healing, or an inward one like a touch of divine consolation in prayer.
It may be gentle like a breeze or overwhelming like a tempest."
Take time in the days leading up to Christmas to see the signs all around us that Jesus is near.
"Signs are the fuel of our faith in our earthly journey."
