We often take on more than we are capable of carrying out, especially the hours and days before Christmas. Why do we do that to ourselves? The irony of our effort is this: God came to before we were ready and is pleased to dwell with us just as we are. Born in a stable and wrapped in bands of cloth.. God doesn't need perfection.
Today, keep it simple. Let yourself feel grace now. Open up to enjoyment of Christmas now. The peace of Christmas is made perfect in the moment called NOW. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor 12:9
