I Love the Christmas season! I Love all of it! The twinkly lights, the music, the baking, the shopping (ok, not so much! Love buying gifts for my family and friends, crowds in long shopping lines, NOT!) All the commercialism that others grumble about, I love. Maybe, in my world, it’s because behind it all I know that it’s a celebration of Christ’s birth.
Christmas is the celebration of Love. So all the running out of scotch tape, or “what to wear for Christmas Eve”, or “do we have a gift for the mailman”; all of it is exciting and fun and yes, even peaceful. “Peaceful?”, you ask…
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Phillipians 4:7
I know that verse personally, I feel that verse. And peace in the midst of all the holiday hub-bub is what He can give to you. I promise.
