“We have hints that there is a way of life vastly richer and deeper than all this hurried existence, a life of unhurried serenity and peace and power. If only we could slip over into that Center.”
– Thomas Kelly
This year for Christmas I want unhurried devotion more than anything else. I want time spent alone with Jesus. I want to be still and know that He is God. I want the peace, joy, and love that we send to others in Christmas cards, but so rarely make space for ourselves. I want to spend time in the evenings alone with Paul. (Note: Adden, that means you need to learn how to sleep, little man! I love you dearly, but you sleeping is essential to my sanity.) I want to spend time with family, reconnect with friends, and reach out to neighbors. I want to see the season through my children’s eyes and I want them to see beauty and lots of it.
If any of you have suggestions about how you create space in your life – especially at this time of year – please send them my way. I would love any help that I can get! Thank you!
