Advent reflection

I came across this reflection today, and I wanted to share it with anyone (anyone??) that has stuck with my extremely long dry spell and is still checking in on my blog. (Thank you if you're there, and my apologies that life has been both so crazy and so dull that there hasn't been much in the way of blog fodder.)

O little inn of Bethlehem
How like we are to you.
Our lives are crowded to the brim
With this and that to do.
We're not unfriendly to the King,
We mean well without a doubt;
We have no hostile feelings,
We merely crowd Him out.

(Getting Ready for Christmas, ed. Emma Lapp)
