MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! As we start one of the most meaningful days of the year (second, to Easter, in my opinion. If it weren’t for Easter, we wouldn’t have Christmas). It can end up being a stretch for perfection, a goal for the best tree or the best present or the best Christmas ham… but it doesn’t need to be. It shouldn’t be.
My prayer for all of you is that this day may be one of peace and rest. One of love and family and friends. One of hope.
May you and yours be safe and healthy. May you know that regardless of you presents, you are more than enough. YOU are already enough, and so loved and treasured by God.
And even if your tree comes from a street-side tree lot, or a box, or it’s imaginary, take a deep breath and soak it all in, this day of glory.
