CHRISTmas

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

Happy Holidays

MERRY CHRISTMAS

I always get stressed because we have so much going on around the holidays....but I always stop and think that no matter what we will all be happy just to be together. I hope you get out of your funk soon.
