Here we are, a few short days away from Christmas. In all likelihood, you have already finished your lessons and are in the midst of your Christmas break. And perhaps you are also struggling to enjoy the blessings of the season.
For many of us, and for a variety of reasons, Christmas can be overwhelming and stressful. In light of all the Facebook posts, Tweets, and blogs that have already addressed the need to slow down and relax and enjoy this time of year, I'll keep this short and sweet.
Here's my one piece of advice for you this Christmas ~
I have absolutely no advice...I'll simply encourage you to give yourself permission to enjoy yourself right where you're at this Christmas.
That's it - there's my profound wisdom for all who are having a rough go of things this December. Give yourself permission to ENJOY your life. You might just be surprised at the way God blesses you when you let yourself be fully at rest in Him.
Lord bless you this Christmas!
Day 291 done :)
