Christmas on the Freeway

Cartoon of two boys under a Christmas tree. One says, "It must have been tough for Joseph and Mary. Can you imagine driving a donkey on the freeway?"A freeway is a place of busyness. We are speeding by, barely noticing what is going on around us. A freeway is made to get us somewhere as quick as possible.

Experience has taught me a freeway is not a place for contemplation or for quiet reflection. It is not a place you would expect Joseph and Mary. Every once in a while, we need to get off the freeway, pause, and reflect on what we are thankful for this holiday season.
