Stop for a moment and take stock of where you are. We are in the middle of a busy time, Christmas is right around the corner, and if we don’t take intentional steps to enjoy the season, it can easily fly by.

There aren’t too many days left between now and Christmas. Take a peek at your calendar and schedule a night between now and Christmas.

Put it on the calendar… if you don’t, it won’t happen.

Sit down with your husband or wife and gather your kids around the Christmas tree. Then share with one another your favorite Christmas memories. Spend some time reflecting on Christmases past and enjoying each other’s favorite aspects of the Christmas season.

Then open up your Bible and read aloud Luke chapter 2 as a family and spend a few moments quietly reflecting on the meaning of Christmas.

Our prayer for you is that you enjoy the gift that God gave us all, the gift of his son, on Christmas this year.
