an honest word about Christmas
Instead, let's change the way we think, speak, and act about Christmas. Let's make it more about Christ and less about the masses/us. Let's make it more about giving than receiving. More about loving and living than wanting and needing. My Christmas prayer for us is that we would not forget the true Reason for this season. May we be the Linuses of this world reminding others what Christmas is truly about.
Now don't think I've gone all crazy on you. I'll still be giving gifts, making sweets, and sharing some of my frugalish ideas here too. I just don't want to let the perpetual "list" ruin my joy and divert my focus this Christmas. I hope you'll join me in seeking to live the line of the famous carol this Christmas: "sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we. Let all within us praise His holy name!"
With much love this Christmas!
