Though I have lobbied to add a month between November and December (still undecided on the name of said new month) so that we could savor the days that pass too quickly to suit me, the reality is that we have just one short month between the Thanksgiving celebration and Christmas Day. Aware or not, we step onto that bullet train known as the Christmas season. Let’s take some time together to mindfully consider the coming days. My goal is to fight and focus; fight the pull of the commercial world, the retail world, and the Pinterest world to make the season all about the outer trappings, the quest for perfection in all things visual and physical, and focus on what we might decorate our hearts with that would be pleasing to the One we celebrate. So, to do that, I am going to be talking to myself for the next few days, a personal pep rally to clarify what Christmas is not and what Christmas is. You are welcome to listen in!
