I just can't get into it this year, y'all. And I HATE THAT. I am tired. I am stressed. It breaks my heart when people (myself included) DREAD Christmas because ... I'm not prepared. I haven't bought enough. I haven't decorated enough. I haven't wrapped ANYTHING. And it seems like lots of people I know are sharing this funk with me this year.
I just wanted to take a minute, and think about this.
CHRISTMAS IS JESUS'S BIRTHDAY!
Without Him, life here would be POINTLESS. I know I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago if it weren't for Him, and me knowing He's got a plan for me way better than anything I could dream up. And that the stress and pain and questions of this life are only temporary.
Tonight, I just wanted to take a minute to reflect on what Christmas is really about.
This brings tears to my eyes EVERY time I watch it - within seconds of pushing play.
Let's all take a minute to be grateful for HIM, for each other, for our jobs, stressful as they may be, for our health, for our freedom ...
Slow down, breathe, and
