I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I certainly did, except for the not so glorious ending of the Razorback football season. One of the ways God keeps me humble is he made me a Razorback fan.
I have been giving a lot of thought lately about thanks, gratitude, and being content to be the person that I am. It seems I spent a lot of time over the years trying to be someone else or pleasing others for the wrong reasons. Don’t worry, I am not holding a pity party, I am simply doing a little examination. Didn’t somebody once wax eloquent about an unexamined life?
Advent is upon us, and I think it is worth a little time, thought, and effort to think about how I can celebrate all the festivities of Advent season and still be the person God wants and expects me to be. I hoe you will help me on this quest by spending a moment or two thinking about the same and posting a comment or two about your plans. As we prepare for the day that Christ enters this world and our lives let us all give some thought as to how we can be the best we can be.
What do you think?
Right now I have a terrible cold. Sometimes I think God tells me to slow down in this season by giving me these rest periods. He must really mean it because he also made me allergic to poinsettias! Head colds are not conducive to brilliant thinking, but it does open up the time for reading and meditation.
So sorry to hear about the cold, but a great comment. It also tells me not to send you a poinsettia. Get well soon! W.
Thank you for this challenge. I believe my focus will be on Joy….Joy to the World the Lord has come..:::in spite of disturbing headlines and troubling times, the secure and safe place is in Joyous reflection and Joy…He is here! God bless you for your shared words
Thank you Keren. You hit the nail on the head. W.
