It’s the kickoff of the Christmas season…

It’s that time of the year when we find ourselves tossed in a dozen different directions. With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s officially the Christmas season.

While I love this time of the year, it’s hard not to be a little stressed out with the shopping, the decorating. Christmas cards to be sent out. The baking, parties, and family events.

So this Christmas, be sure to take some time to destress yourself by reading a good book, or watching a favorite Christmas movie, or simply listening to some carols.

And during the craziness of this season, don’t let the true reason for the season be forgotten.

nativity

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9: 6-7

 

Merry Christmas!

 

All the best…
