This weekend, do something a bit different

Pin It

It's the end of the year. We are close to Christmas. Family members flood in from wherever they live, or we tend to fly their way. 

My hope for you is that you are not trapped inside a mall doing last minute shopping, or stressed out over pre-holiday cooking. Years from now, your loved ones won't really remember what you got them, what you cooked, and honestly, it's just not worth it.

Spend time with those you love. Have long talks and hot cups of tea. Enjoy gingerbread cookies and the look of winter on your backyard. Share meals and prayers. 

And above all, don't forget Jesus. It's easy for us to relax from a long and hard-working year on the job to veg out in front of the TV. Christ is our one true love, whom will never forsake us, whom will always be there for us. And I bet He is waiting for you to set some alone time with him. That's way more important than football, shopping or lounging.
