Thanksgiving through Christmas motto...

If you are at all like me, you will understand immediately why I bought this little pillow at Stein Mart the other day. First I smiled when I read it, then I did a u-turn and went back and grabbed it!

It's my motto for December. Not my spiritual motto, just my reminder as I head into these very busy days, that the tangling of my tinsel is not going to ruin the spirit of joy during this special time.

It sums up what I do NOT want this December to be like. I know it's still only November, but I'm beginning to feel it coming!

The bigger picture... 

December is always an intense month. I have been guilty of filling it so full that the joy and blessing of Jesus birth has gotten crowded out. I want to keep all that tinsel untangled this December, and go for the gold!

The Master said, “Sonja, dear Sonja, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.”
(Luke 10:41-42 paraphrased)
