Our practice this month is to take note of where God is being revealed. It is not so much another item for the To-Do list (who needs that?!), as a prioritization of your "To-Be" list. When we begin to see signs of God's presence and work in our everyday lives, we have already begun to celebrate the gift of "God-With-Us" (Emmanuel).
In this season when our attention is focused on gifts that we will give later, don't forget to notice the gifts that are right in front of us today.
