OK – true confession time. Do you ever reach a point during the Christmas season when you think, HELP, I can’t do all this? If you’re answer is yes, I’m with you. Every year I think, next year will be different. I’ll start earlier, I’ll keep it simple, I’ll delegate ….. but every year I still seem to have that moment (or day (s) ). But it’s all good/fun stuff I tell myself. I’m doing it for others …..
I celebrate Christmas because it’s the day our world has chosen to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He loves me, guides me, extends amazing grace to me, fills me with joy, gives me hope, none of which I deserve. He’s chosen me and you, all we have to do is accept that love and believe!!
Soooo if I share that Love, the love of the Lord, that’s what truly matters. If the decorations are beautiful, that’s just an extra. If the presents get wrapped, great! If dinner doesn’t burn, fantastic!! None of those things matter if they’re not done out of love, with a happy and joyful heart! If there’s a little dust here and there, and that extra plate of cookies isn’t made, it’s OK as long as I’ve loved those I’ve been in contact with throughout the season.
I hope you don’t feel preached at!! You really just joined me for a sermon for myself! I’m going to make loving, my number one priority these last couple weeks before Christmas. It truly is, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
Thanks for visiting!
