I am on vacation and it has been awesome. Originally I decided to take the week to be with our kids who are done with finals this week. But, as usual, they have other plans.
It's off to Chicago for one kid and off to Michigan for the other until this weekend. So, darn, I am home alone! So...no excuses to not be ready for Christmas - I better get busy! Tonight my living room is once again covered with a huge project that is one of my gifts to a family member. I have a 2 day deadline, then everyone comes home! Still, I refuse to be stressed.
Stressed: To subject to physical or mental pressure, tension, or strain. No thanks-I choose not to be stressed.
My desire is to really be ready this year, to not miss focusing on what God did for us so long ago, and to avoid the stress of the holiday.
Luke 2:10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
And I will say, "Glory To God in the Highest!"
