Coincidentally our church is advocating our members to consider simplifying their lives this Christmas season. I say "coincidentally" because with our current situation of unemployment and now a family health crisis going on, it had already been on my mind to somehow celebrate the birth of the Savior in a more appropriate and thoughtful way than we have in past years.
I do love the entire Christmas season. I love decorating our home, baking the cookies, giving and receiving the gifts, going to the parties and concerts and special church services, and the hundreds of other little things we traditionally do non-stop for about six weeks out of the year.
I'm not sure at this point what exactly I will do differently this year. I'm still thinking about what that might look like. I had the idea that I will do a brief blog post each day starting December 1st and going through the entire season~both for the purpose of keeping myself accountable and also to share with you my ideas. I hope you will share some of yours with me as well.
