Happy First Sunday of Advent!!
As this Christmas season begins, I have one objective: To “Give it a Rest!”
Ya’ll know what I mean. I’ve lost 20 pounds but I want to go just one more size down. I’m doing great in my career, but well… I’m bored sometimes. I’ve got projects and lists and school things to accomplish with the kids. There’s controversy and politics. There are points to be made and cases to be argued. I need to get a bigger savings account, a different haircut, a pedicure for heaven’s sake. I need a more perfect marriage, need to push harder, need to think more creatively. I need to write another freakin’ book already!!!
Ugh! Give it a rest!!! What I have is enough. Who I love is enough. He Who Loved Me First is enough.
It’s time. Emmanuel is calling me to peace. It’s time to enjoy, time to love, time to revel, time to cherish, time to laugh.
It’s Christmas, ya’ll! The Child is born for us. For me.
Let’s give the running and pushing and stressing a rest. Let’s simply unwrap the Gift, shall we?by
