It’s Monday….I get the daily reminder…FIVE days until Christmas. My heart is happy. Their joy and excitement bring light to the season and I am thankful that it is untainted by grief or stress or worry. They know only wonder.
As we head into a week that has the potential to be busy, distracting, and even chaotic, may we build in boundaries and margin and remember to slow down and remember the why and the wonder. May we slow down from all the busy rushing and stop to marvel at the lights and the music and the magic. May we see through the eyes of a child this week and stop in wonder over the gift that is Christmas.
And may we never stop counting the gifts and may we spend extra time at the manger this week, lost in wonder over this, the greatest gift, the Gift that gave us everything.
