Have you ever walked, run, biked or even driven a long way. Some of you have participated in the MS 150 bike ride to Austin, others have run marathons, and maybe even a few of you took cross country road trips in your younger days (or maybe now). I have never been one to want to walk, run, bike or drive a long distance. For some, there is joy in the journey – I guess I am just a “let’s get there” person. Yet, as I think about the wise men coming to see Jesus, I reflect on the importance of having joy in the journey, even when it is long and arduous. They came to Bethlehem with expectant joy!
