Christmas in July

Christmas in July

So far it’s been a hectic summer in my world, with lots of travel and a move thrown in. Time for relaxing has been hard to come by. I’m sure that’s the case for many of us — life just seems to get busier all the time. And in the midst of the chaos, a little book appeared in my mailbox — A Eucharistic Christmas: Advent Meditations on the Presence of Christ. The cover was so peaceful, I had to take a moment and flip through its pages. Just a few minutes spent reading brought a sense of calm and the reminder of Jesus’ presence. For example:

Countless demands and activities of all sorts sweep us along so that we easily become disconnected from the eucharistic ChristmasLord. He will daily recharge the batteries of our life and ministry…as we pray before the tabernacle and maintain our living relationship with Jesus.

This collection of meditations will definitely enhance the Advent season, but there’s always room for a little bit of Christmas in July!
