My tree is half lit. The lights went out after they were up on the tree. It’s been like this for over eight days. The replacement lights were purchased seven days ago and only half of those lights work as well.
The outside of my home is not decorated. The pine boughs and lights that are to go in the window boxes are still sitting in my garage.
The recipes I printed off to make delicious goodies to be sent out to friends and family around the world are still just ingredients written on a recipe card.
The Christmas photo and card never made it to the printer and into mailboxes of our nearest and dearest.
I am having friends over Christmas Eve and I’ve avoided the grocery store like the plague.
I am completely at peace with it all.
Whatever you choose to do this Christmas season, do it with love. Give of your time. Give of yourself. Be like Christ.
