Some time back I remember reading an article about Michael Jordan.  The article talked about the "zone" and a basketball players ability to block out the many distractions of a game to focus entirely on the task at hand, putting the ball in the basket.  I don't think anyone was better at this than Michael Jordan.  I think this is a skill we could all benefit from during this time of year. 

It is so easy to become distracted with the "game" of Christmas.  We are overcome daily by thoughts of presents, relatives, parties, church and work events, school and work obligations, Christmas cards, and the list goes on.  But what about keeping our thoughts and attention on "the task at hand", glorifying God in the highest.  Christ desires and requests our full attention, during the holidays, and long afterwards.  It is for Him that we celebrate. 

Take the time to get in the "zone" today, and to let God take over your thoughts and attention.  See Him in your day and give Him thanks for all that you have been given.  Ask Him to make His presence known to you today and enjoy the gift.

That is both heartbreaking and rtehawarming to read of his thoughts. The farm animals are on borrowed time if they are drinking contaminated water, eating contaminated food and breathing contaminated air. The kindness being shown in feeding them until the ultimate end of their lives is touching. No one has a right to complain about the hard choices these farmers are having to make. Linda
