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.
Ornaments from family and friends.
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.
