This past Tuesday morning we had our class Christmas parties.
I trust for many of you the morning looked like this:Full of great conversation
Moments like these are the highlights of the holiday season, aren’t they?
But I know, as women, the holidays can also be a struggle as we fly from gathering to gathering . . . squeezing Christmas programs and shopping and decorating and baking and, sometimes, even hosting into our already busy schedules.
At our Knees to the Earth Christmas party, Shereen shared Psalm 116 with us. I love these words from that passage:
“I said to myself, “Relax and rest.
God has showered you with blessings.
Soul, you’ve been rescued from death;
Eye, you’ve been rescued from tears;
And you, Foot, were kept from stumbling.” Psalm 116: 7-8 (MSG)
Relax, rest and remember God’s shower of blessings. Don’t you just love that? What a wonderful recipe to relieve stress this holiday season. So here’s my Christmas gift to each of you. Pour yourself a cup of your favorite hot beverage and maybe grab a bite of your favorite Christmas treat (go ahead . . . indulge). Then click on this link. While you watch the video, relax . . . rest . . . and remember God’s blessings. Repeat as needed throughout the season.
Have a Merry Christmas, y’all!
See you in January.
