Don't cry, it's just Christmas!

Sometimes this season of gift giving, party planning, event attending and traveling can be a tadge stressful.  In my moments of stress (which have been few this year) I refocus on the whole purpose of Christmas. My Jesus was born. And my God ,who is the ultimate gift giver, gave me freedom from stress and worry when gifting me life more abudnant and joyful. Also, it's the gift that keeps on giving. Yeah. It's eternal- no big deal. So when the stress of what to get your mother in law gets you feeling less than merry and jolly- breath, pray and focus on what's important. The love behind the gift. The meaning of Jesus' birth and the purpose of this season.

  1. Amen to that! Unfortunately, Christmas DOES want to make me cry every now and then. Thanks for the good reminder!
