This is the time of year so many people become buried alive with stuff-to-do, including myself. We need to remember that we cannot do it all. (not if we wish to maintain our sanity…) We need to pick and choose how we prepare for Christmas, making time for the tasks and events we really enjoy. (okay, we might have to clean house even if we don’t enjoy it…) For instance, I like writing out and sending Christmas cards, so I’ll probably finish those today. But I don’t bake and never have. But if making Christmas cookies is joyful for you, then by all means get busy. Let’s just not forget that if we keep it simple, we can spend more time enjoying the holiday. And that’s the whole point, no? By the way, if any of you are members of the ACFW book club, my book is being voted on right now for the possible book-club selection for April. Please vote for An Amish Family Reunion if you’re a book club member by Wednesday 12-14. here’s the link:
And finally, here is a lovely video Christmas card from our writing chapter, Ohio ACFW. It was put together by Michelle Levigne and she did a super job. here’s the link:
I wish everyone the most blessed of Christmases and all good things in 2012!
