I’m not a big fan of Christmas stress. I usually get myself pretty stressed. Add our wedding anniversary to the church and family Christmas stuff and it’s a pretty busy time of year.
This year I’ve managed to avoid most of the stress. I have my sermons done, including my January 8 one (a record!) so I can kick back for most of the next two weeks. Most of my wrapping is done. I hate wrapping, but I always feel a bit guilty leaving it to Charlene, even though she says she enjoys it.
I’m looking forward to a couple of lighter weeks and some time with family.
In any case, all the best to you this Christmas. I know quite a few of you now who visit here, although I’m sure that there are many I don’t know. I hope you’ll get some time to slow down and enjoy all of God’s gifts – not the least of which is the staggering gift of God becoming one of us. Have a great Christmas.
