TIS THE SEASON
So hard to believe that already Thanksgiving has passed, and that the Christmas Season, The Advent, is already upon us. Made me sad to see so many people , in so many places, fighting over popular gifts on Thanksgiving day. I think it is a sad commentary on what many people focus on during this Holiday season. I am determined this year, to spend more time in my kitchen with my mothers old apron on, making home made little gifts of love, making homemade cards for special people in my life, and focusing on LOVE and the real reason that we celebrate this season. Less rush and stress, and more time to appreciate the people who are precious to me. I have challenged my self to do, once at least each day, a small act of kindness in honor of the love of this season. Does not mean I have to spend a lot of money on it, but that I will try to put MYSELF in to these acts. Beginning today.
I am also committed to daily reflecting on the Lord in my life for whom we honor this time. CHRISTMAS, not winter holiday, or even XMAS. Am grateful for one friend who is hosting an online ADVENT bible study. So grateful for this, and will help me keep my focus! I challenge all of you to take time each and every day to LOVE AND APPRECIATE, rather than let all of the stresses of the holidays take over your life as well as your bank account. Hugs to all of you and may your Christmas season be filled with peace and blessings
