It's THAT time of year.........

You know that time where you feel like you can't hardly breathe? You go, go, go and then go some more. There are Christmas parties for work, church, social, and of course the kids. You have to BUY a gift for this event or that one. Your kids are in 10 different activities that you must attend. I mean what kind of Parent would you be otherwise. It's the time that we can't eat together as a family because we have to Go somewhere. Well guess what? If this is your life I am sad for you. JESUS is the reason for season. Or is he? Is he just another lame excuse we give to all our worldly friends. Well he is for me. We have all but stopped most activities this season. Sure we have gone to a party or two. But consume us no more. We as a family are tired of stuff, things, and wasting of time. So here is your challenge... SLOW DOWN. Enjoy yourself, and your kids. Go for a drive to see lights, make hot chocolate together, cookies, and watch Elf. It's a funny movie. And Please Please remember what it is really all about. Not getting everything YOU want, but giving to others. Some people are really hurting this Christmas season. Wouldn't it be great if we forgot about ourselves and gave of ourselves? Oh, and by the way Merry Christmas.


Love,
Vicki
