We are officially in the countdown to Christmas…according to the numerous Advent calendars dotting the walls of my house. And even though it’s a time of celebration, family and tradition, it also carries a lot of pressure and stress with it. For those who have lost loved ones, it’s a difficult time full of memories. And for those that celebrate the holidays with a happy heart, there is still *everything* that needs to be done.Sunday Scripture image courtesy of Nicki Koziarz
Decorating, shopping, cooking, planning, creating, shopping, Christmas cards, cookie swaps, class parties, picking out a tree, Advent, ornaments, wrapping, Eggnog, reindeer, Elves on Shelves, visiting Santa, holiday lights, church, Christmas outfits, shopping, eating, cleaning, hosting….
Can we all just agree not to judge each other? That way, maybe we can take a breath, relax, and just enjoy the blessings that come with Christmas.
Have a blessed week!
