Preparing Your Heart For Christmas

As we are all shifting towards this exciting season, I want to offer two pieces of encouragement amidst the busyness of it all.

 

A.  Be Proactive, plan ahead!

 

From gift shopping and wrapping to children’s activities, and from community events to getting Christmas photos taken and sent, Christmas can leave you feeling like your head is spinning.
 

The enemies of a meaningful Christmas are procrastination and no planning.

If you don’t plan, you create competition for your heart’s focus on what really matters. Chaos can rob you of the opportunity to be more contemplative this Christmas.  
 
 
Action step: For these things create a checklist/calendar: there are millions of free ones available on Pinterest. You can alter it as needed/preferred.

HERE is a free one that has come highly recommended.
