It’s been a weird few weeks around my household. It started with a great start to the advent season. I felt the cleaning going on in my own heart and was embracing the Christmas season full on. I was knocked off my feet with the news of our good friend’s death and I quickly went from our Christmas mood to another. The week went by and all of a sudden you realize that Christmas is next week. In a way, I just couldn’t feel it anymore. That on top of several other difficult situations in my family which unfortunately causes stress and a lack of Christmas spirit has just left me tired.
However, this morning, while starting “Christmas” with Aaron’s family, I am determined.Determined to celebrate the Christmas spirit in a way to know Jesus more and bring Him glory. I am cautious though. Cautious not to fall into the trap of our culture’s pressure that will leave us empty. Jesus, help us.
