Rush, Rush, Rush
You've done it. So have I. We've rushed through a day just trying to get to the next thing on our to do list.
It happens a lot this time of year. Go to work, pick up the kids, find a sitter, get to the Christmas party of the evening, come home and crash. Only to start over the next day with a few variations. Maybe instead of a Christmas party, it's a Christmas performance, or a shopping excursion (when they're rushed it yanks all the fun out of shopping).
But what if this was your last Christmas? Would you do the same things? Buy the same presents? Go to the same parties?
As the world moves away from the REAL Reason for the season (yes, it's now a cliche, but it works), I challenge you to move toward Him. Cast aside all the trappings, even if for only a moment, and focus on giving Him thanks.
Put the to do lists away. Stop rushing about. Focus on the creator of Christmas.
