Where did we get the idea that Christmas needed to be perfect?
How many of you stress over the holidays because you want to be sure to give that perfect gift, set that perfect table, serve that perfect meal, say that perfect thing?
Christmas is a mess. That’s how Christmas started – messy.
Normalize It — Mess is the way it is. Normalize it by giving yourself permission to be less than perfect. Give the gift of this same permission to others. Take the pressure off. Take a deep breath and soak in all the blessings of Christ.
How do you make the most of your Christmas times?
