In Others’ Words: Taking Christmas a Little at a Time

Christmas can get awfully crowded — filled up to overflowing by a busy schedule. Things to do. People to see. Presents to buy and wrap. Cards to address and mail — or maybe design online and email. Traditions to be kept or begun.

And somewhere in the midst of all the doing, we want to remember the reason for the season . . . the “why” of it all . . . the “who” we are celebrating.

What if we didn’t confine Christmas to a single month, but rather let the celebration overflow to all the days of our lives? What if “The most wonderful time of the year” became our theme song and we celebrated God-with-us every day. What if “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” wasn’t just sung about in Christmas cantatas, but rather influenced our relationships with others?

I’m wishing you a joy-filled Christmas today … one that shows up in your life a little at a time, all through the coming New Year. 

In Your Words: How would your life look different if you took Christmas a little at a time, all through the year?
