Can you believe that it’s already December 1st? For many the official countdown till Christmas begins today. Before this season comes and goes quicker than two blinks, I think now is the time to stop, reflect and cherish each moment during this often busy time. How does one do this you may ask? Well it’s simple. You make it a point to do so. It’s very easy to get distracted with our ever growing to-do lists, baking, crafting, buying gifts, etc, that by the time Christmas day actual comes we are exhausted & burnt out to truly enjoy it. Let’s cut our to-do lists in half, be okay with not getting every single thing done each day, and simply take in the beauty of this season with our loved ones. This time is precious especially if you have little ones & you want to make lasting memories.
So lets turn up the Christmas music, enjoy hot chocolate, take a walk and admire the Christmas decor in the neighborhood, but most importantly lets remember the true meaning of this season which is Jesus Christ!
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
