Don't panic: the holidays are just around the corner! I'm a Christian, so I
celebrate that Jesus Christ, whom I really do believe is the Savior of the World, has come, died on a cross (Easter), and arose from the dead. He is actually my living savior, and I will see Him some day.
I realize that some of you may not be Believers; however, you may believe in God and you may like celebrating this time of the year, whatever your religion may be. I do not hide my beliefs, because I believe that Jesus taught that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no one can be with the Father (God), unless he or she believes in Him.
Some of the ways I like to celebrate is with bright colors, sending out cards, fixing festive food, and putting up a Christmas tree. I use to always sing special Christmas music in church, but this year I have not had the energy to go to rehearsals. However, I am sure I will sing carols around the house and in church services. Different years, we have found special things to do for someone else; as well as spending time with friends and family -- also exchanging gifts.
My early gift to you is going to be in my next post. It's a Holiday Cleaning Calendar that you can put in a notebook, put on your refrigerator, or frame. It's free.
Just print it out and enjoy.
You may not do things on the same days I do, but I consider this an outline. I don't always know how I am going to feel from one day to the other, so I do what I can. And, I do what I think is most important. That is why I tell you to make a list. Start with three things.
Have I mentioned that you don't have to have everything perfect or the way it used to be to enjoy your holiday? Since I have been at the point I was most ill, I have discovered that simple is good.
Simple is good!
May blessings abound in your lives.
