Hustle and Bustle Preparation

Hustle and Bustle Preparation

Children anticipate the upcoming Christmas celebration with happy and wide-eyed expectation. As adults, however, it might become an endless list. Hustling around shopping for just the right gifts, preparing traditional meals, decorating the house and so much more, all because we want the holiday to be perfect.

Isn’t this time of year supposed to be fun and relaxing?  Instead, for many of us, in the midst of all the business and preparation, it’s easy to lose sight of the “Reason for the Season.” Maybe we can take some time to prepare our hearts to welcome estranged relatives and friends and stop worrying about who gets along with whom.

Gifts of our love in actions, our time, forgiveness, acceptance, tolerance, these can’t be bought but are always welcomed and appreciated.

Happy Preparation!  ‘For unto us, a child is born’ Isaiah 9:6
