Entering into the Holy-Daze

It's coming....almost here.......the holidays, or holy-daze as it seems to be.


When did the preparation become more important than the event?


We've really worked on "simplifying" our holiday season around our extended family:
  We draw names so that we purchase a gift for just one other person.
  We "home-make" crafts, bake our own Christmas Goodies....
   Sing around the piano and carol to our neighbors.....


All with the intent of 'keeping it simple' so that we can focus on the Main Event...
The Reason for the Season....Jesus Christ coming to earth.......


But do we accomplish what we set out to do?


Are we in awe at the fact that "The WORD has become flesh and lived among us?"
Do we really get that "In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD was God?'


May I remind myself and encourage you at the same time to keep first things first as you step into this most holy of seasons.....


Keep in the Living Word, my friend.  There is no substitute.
Pause in the "fun" of it all to remember Whose you are and why you are still here.


It's coming...almost here....the holy days.......


Pausing in the 'days',

What a great time to share the simple way to celebrate! Now, on to the simplifying. Yes, may we all make it there so that we may enjoy the true reason for the season!

Simple yet profound when it comes to Jesus and humans interacting....
