In a season of hustle and bustle, I'm going to try to sit down.
I'm going to host a Thanksgiving meal and do my best not to stress over every detail and morsel being perfect.
I'm going to decorate our house for Christmas simply with what we have (the photo below is from last year).
I'm going to finish Christmas shopping in a timely manner so there's no rush at the end.
I'm going to think on the Big Christmas picture through the The Advent Jesse Tree devotional we do as a family.
I'm going to try to make Christmas treats special by not gorging on them all month long and instead waiting until the week or two before to start baking.
I'm going to begin a journey that has taken a lot of courage to commit to (for fear of failing)- reading through the Bible in 90 days (starting December 1st if you'd like to join me!).
I'm going take the month of December off from blogging.
Instead of speeding up, I'm going to force myself to slow down. Instead of a barreling locomotive charging into the station, I want to softly land on Christmas day like a leaf floating in the breeze. This analogy may seem silly, but I think it's going to stick for me- and it may be the best Christmas present I can give myself. Join me?
With Love and Thanksgiving and Christmas Blessings,
