'Twas the Write Before Christmas: But I Have Promises to Keep

I spend the entire day trying to figure out which day of the week it actually is.

There are Christmas cards to address

cookies to finish baking

presents to wrap

rooms to clean

gifts to find

meals to make

friends to hug

little boys to snuggle

places to be

oh, the endless places to be ...

I find irony in the busyness during this time of year -- Advent, this season of waiting.

I half joke that Advent has too literally become a season of anticipated waiting ... waiting for the Christmas hustle to go and life to slow, return to normal pace.

All I really want to do is curl up on the couch, snuggle beneath a blanket, open my Bible and my journal and bask in the light of the Christmas tree

bask in the Light of Christmas

wait for the anticipated coming of celebration of a Savior

make more room for Him in this time

in this space

in these crowded and crunched days.

But I have promises to keep

and many {many many many many many} miles to go before I sleep.

There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
