In one week, it’s Christmas Eve.
At my school we have a daily devotion led by a different staff member every week. One week a coworker led about the importance of rest and resting in God’s promises. Every time I saw her I would joke about how terrible I was/am at resting. Well, yesterday she brought me a “rest kit” for Christmas. It had hot chocolate, a bottle of wine, lavender bath salts, hot tea, and a book of Psalms. Just the MOST precious.
I had a mom stop me in carpool yesterday and handed me a cooler of food from Sprouts. “I know it’s been a week, and I wanted to cover your dinner for tonight.” It doesn’t take a lot to make someone’s day.
I had a coworker give me a “peppermint” themed Christmas gift. Such an easy and fun and festive idea. These are two of my favorites from the bag.
I’m just sharing one favorite today, but it’s a good one, so it counts for three.
No need for anyone to walk out on your fun old-fashioned family Christmas…especially if they wrapped their cat as a present or are donning a dickey. No one wants that.
So, after the wrapping paper has been cleaned off the floor and you’re just staring at each other, why not play a game? I hosted two different Christmas Paloozas this week, and I made them both play this. It’s “Name that Christmas Movie” but you identify the movie by listening to the song. Here’s the playlist.
- Love Actually
- The Holiday
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- Charlie Brown Christmas
- Home Alone
- The Family Stone
- Home Alone 2
- The Polar Express
- Christmas with the Kranks
- Meet Me in St. Louis
- Christmas Vacation
- Home Alone
I’ll leave you today with Kat’s and my Christmas cards in the hopes it makes you feel all Christmasy inside. Kat’s seems a bit sacrilegious, but that’s between her and the Lord.
Be merry…or Mary
