It was called a mass for Christ. Yet we focus on all the rush and business of this time of year. Me included. Just breath. Slow down. It isn't going to all be perfect, it isn't going to make every one happy, and I am not able to make it all as I think it should be! So take a step back, laugh at all the stress and expectations and set them aside.
If I don't send the cards out on time, oh well. If I don't get a certain gift for a certain child, oh well. We have the whole year to give and bless and love each other!!!! Why do we wait for one day out the year?
There, now I feel better. Enjoy the beauty of the season, pray a lot, and ask God to show us how we can do something to help those in need, all year.
