Keeping up is tough, especially this time of year. It seems like there's just not enough time to do everything. Sometimes you just have to let go and realize you can't do everything. It's just not possible. I always have a running list in my head of all the things I want to accomplish and of course a few written lists around the house. Somehow instead of things getting crossed off, the list just seems to keep growing and getting longer.
I hope that you can take time to slow down and enjoy the gifts that surround you. Not the gifts that you're getting Christmas morning but the gifts that are present in your life everyday. I know this time of year can bring mixed emotions for some people. I pray that you can focus on the Light, that was brought to this dark place, long ago in a lowly manger.
