Advent in the hill country

mountain goat in the hills north of Port-au-Prince

"The high hills are a refuge for the mountain goats,
and the stony cliffs for the rock badgers."
-- Psalm 104:19 (or 18, depending on your translation)

hill country to the north of Port-au-Prince
"In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth."
-- Luke 1:39-40

Where do we find refuge?
What will we find if we take time this week to go to the hill country as we, too, prepare for that birth? 
 What will our greeting be?
