Oh me. My life is doing the spinning out of my control thing! I typically start the Christmas season the day after Thanksgiving. Not doing anything ABOUT starting the season-just thinking about how I ought to be starting. And then I let the pressure mount. Not really meaning for the Christmas season to be a pressure situation. It just happens that way. So here I am at I don't know how many days until Christmas? A WEEK! The tree is up, the presents bought, the cards addressed, the cookies made. Why do I feel swept up in some kind of whirlwind?
My family keeps asking me what I want for Christmas. I say anything they choose will be nice, even though I have too much stuff cluttering up my life as it is. Honestly, there is nothing I want that they can give me. What I want, I want from Him-to be overwhelmed, changed by, deliriously alive in His Holy Spirit. Come into focus sweet Christmas!
