Finding the Spirit of the Season
The result of such an undertaking?
I mentioned to Abe that someday he and and I would go see Christmas light together... ALONE! He said we would miss the children.
I suppose that is possible.
Some of said children are not happy with these pictures being posted. I suggest said children ought not to have tormented my peaceful drive through the lights display.
What can I say? Such a simple outing overwhelmed me. I think it must be the stress of the season.
Every year I desperately want to avoid such stress. I was to bask in the glow of the light of Christ. I want to gather my family around and enjoy the simple pleasures of home and warmth and love. I am admit, I think I am completely failing in my quest. Almost every evening we "divide and conquer" and run from one big event to another. They are all good things, but I find it exhausting. And of course of the expectation and hope of something else, is disappointing.
I did read this calming article that helped my perspective. I did listen to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional. I have loved the music of the season.
Here's to finding more peace and calm and joy in the season. I love this video. It brings me joy and hope. Merry Christmas!
