Christmas is tomorrow and this is the time, friends. As we're frantically running, trying to check the final things off our lists. This is the time to take a breath and remember what's really important, and to honestly ask ourselves what needs to be done. Honestly. Probably not a whole lot of things on that list. Certainly nothing that makes us ignore little smiles or brush off a bedtime story or get frustrated over the littlest nothings, right? So all together now (I'm still working on this lesson myself) let's log off of Pinterest, put away the glue guns, and decide we don't need 10 different foods for dinner. Instead let's use this precious time to do the things that are really important.
Let's enjoy this time with our families. This time that we can never have again. Let's laugh, snuggle, talk, and just be together.
Let's know that even if everything isn't done the way we imagined, it is still good.
Let's be thankful.
And most of all, let's remember the greatest gift that was ever given. And make sure our kids will always remember it too. Make this Christmas count.
And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."
"The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!"
