it’s December. {When did that happen?"}

Sometimes I find that it’s hard to breathe in December. It’s a flurry of term papers, holiday shopping, Christmas parties, and finals. It’s always a time when I don’t know how I’m really going to make it through the next few weeks… and then somehow it’s the end of the next few weeks and I don’t even know how I got here.


Let’s make each other a promise, ok?

Let’s promise to be intentional this Advent Season. Let’s keep the main thing, the main thing; if you know what I mean. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to get caught up in all the business and hype, all the “stuff”,  all the parties or all the events. I don’t want to get to January and wonder where Christmas went.

Instead, let’s get caught up in the special moments of promise and hope.

Let’s focus on the important parts of this season as we prepare our hearts and homes for a baby.

Let us remember who we’re celebrating and why.

Who’s with me?
