My Challenge

I love all things Christmas.  

In a major way. 

I will cry when I hear Charlie Brown's Christmas soundtrack. 

I will get mushy about lights and fires and coffee and gifts and bundled up with love and care. 

But this year, for a lot of reasons, I'm trying to approach this season with purpose.  

I'm thinking about every decoration I put out.  

Why I pull the decoration out. 

Where I put the decoration.  

Remembering its significance.

Simple nativity. 

Ornaments from family and friends.

Memories.

Rather than the typical quickit'sChrismtasandImustdecorate3treesimmediately!

I want to take my time. 

I want to take it in. 

I'm purposefully choosing the joy and peace that comes with the season.
