Yes, we are almost there.
TOMORROW the shelves on every store will have replaced the current piles of candy and scary costumes of today with the grand greetings of Christmas!
As much as I absolutely cannot wait to see the store shelves cleared off as October ends, the refilling part absolutely terrifies — or would it be paralyzes? —me more!
The realization that Christmas is almost here and knowing the days coming will rush by feels especially overwhelming this year. Major remodeling throughout November and an end of the year move of the ministry that I work for will be completely time consuming. Then throw in all the family comings and goings and happenings that will be part of the upcoming days. Yikes!
With all of that going on in life, perhaps it will be a good year to focus on what the reason for the season is all about and will force me to keep things simple without all the usual trappings. Right now seems to be a good time to be thinking those things through before the calendar page turns to almost Christmas, don't you think?
