Tis the season for decorating, baking, entertaining, shopping, wrapping, writing cards, spending money, playing Christmas music, going to Christmas parties, giving gifts… Did I forget anything? The last couple days I have been so busy and looking at my calendar, it isn’t going to slow down. I love the season, I love being busy, I love everything I have on the schedule; but it sure seems like something is missing from my list of “things to do”.
Like so many, I have been so busy, I have been leaving Christ out of my days.
So today, I will be short and sweet. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and talk to God. Relax for a moment, forget your to-do list, block out the sounds of the world, and just listen for the Gods voice.
Thank you for the beauty all around us. Thank you for the friends and family that we have to celebrate with. Thank you for all those things in our lives that keep us so busy. Please forgive us for getting too busy to remember You while we celebrate the birth of your Son.
