Christmas is Here (& a little break too)

Hi there, friends.

 

It’s crazy how fast time flies – here we are again, and it’s Christmastime once more.

 

Just wanted to post a quick note to say that you probably won’t see any posts until January. We all need a break every now and then, and one especially to keep our focus on Christ as things become busy and stressful.

 

I hope you all get a chance to truly feel the love of Christ this Christmas. We’re so often fixated on the packages, the food, the company, the hustle and bustle – and yet, there is One who is far more significant than these trivial things we fill the season with. There is a peace, a love, a goodness, and a joy that far outweighs the cheap thrills we get from our society’s hightly commericalized Christmas.

Instead of rewriting the following posts, I thought I’d link back to last year’s miniseries on Christmas, and if you’re interested, feel free to take a peek. My writing style and tone has grown and changed quite a bit in a year, but I still stand by the principles I upheld therein.

Have an amazing Christmas everyone, and I will see you in 2017. You all are wonderful, and encouraged me SO much this year with all your heartfelt comments.

 

THANK YOU. Whether you comment on every post, only occasionally, just click over from social media, or you’ve never introduced yourself to me before – please know that you are so appreciated.

 

Thanks for the kindness, the love, the time you take to read my little words on Tuesdays and Saturdays and leave lovely comments – thanks for all of it. I am so, SO blessed. And that number right there on the sidebar, that follower count? We’re approaching a thousand, fam. That’s cause for celebration.

 

Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas. See you next year.

  1. Merry Christmas! Here’s to keeping our focus on Jesus. ❤ Thanks for the suggestion of a line to write in my Christmas cards, by the way. I finished them (and started passing them out!) yesterday. What a great project it has been to spread the joy and hope of Jesus.
