No Room

Have you ever had a Christmas season where once it was all over you realized you had left Christ out of the picture?

I have promised to try my best to not let that happen. I am purposely scaling back...not every ornament is on the tree (I only have one tree instead of two), not all the decorations, including the village, came out of their boxes, I've not gone overboard shopping and baking...quite yet.

I want to enjoy the quiet of know, enjoy the sounds around me. Enjoy my children as we watch as Christmas special, prepare for our days off together and plan some quality time. Enjoy just "being".

Our holiday schedules get so busy that we have no room for solitude with the Lord, no room for Jesus to work wonders in your life, no room in our schedules to breathe, no room for Jesus.

I challenge you this holiday season to leave room for the One who is most important.

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. Walmart pizza

2. pictures with Santa

3. holiday music

4. porch lights

5. tea lights
