Twas the week before Christmas
And all through the house
Every creature was stirring
Including the mouse (eek!!!)
No stockings were hung by the chimney with care
For Ms. Betty was on her way over there.
The children were nestled, but not in there beds
Begging and shouting,"more, more, more!"
But Christmas isn't so peaceful anymore -
We have parties to attend and parties to plan.
Gifts to buy and gifts to wrap.
Desserts to be made for our various Christmas parties.
And of course, we have to have the right outfits for all of these events.
Before you know it, we're all caught up with the excitement of the seasons while forgetting what caused the initial excitement in the first place. Jesus came - that is the reason we have Christmas. Don't be a scrooge, but please take a moment to be mindful of that first Christmas. Take time at the beginning of each day, to give thanks. Jesus was the first gift, which allowed us to have many more. I hope you're not feeling out of sorts this Christmas. If you are, take a moment and remember the reason we celebrate.
For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
What are you doing to stay calm at Christmas?
