Be Here 

As you countdown the days to Christmas, take a minute to focus on what is important and in the craziness continue to refocus on your Creator.

It is His love you are celebrating.

This miraculous gift of the Son, this unquenchable love of the Father, this daily guide of the Spirit.

“for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Instead of replaying past moments or creating perfect scenarios in your head of the very near future, be here.

Enjoy the imperfections of this day and those to come.

Know that everything “being perfect” will not create the feeling of fulfillment you are looking for.

You are looking for love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness…. and these are fruits of the Spirit (not fruits of the season).

Be here.

Love here.

Give yourself and those around you lots and lots of grace here and now.

Have a be-present-and-filled-with-the Spirit day.

3 days til Christmas…

    Thank you for this post. I have tried to remind myself of this several times this season. My adult children will not be together here with us, and we will see them separately. That is hard for this Momma, but I realize that I cannot live on the memories and need to be present now. I know the truths that you speak of, but it is easy to be sucked into the vortex of “perfect holidays” as depicted in books, movies and cards! Thanks again, and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
