This week has been unexpected for me. Maybe for you too as you prep for some time with family and friends. My daughter came down sick on Sunday. She made it through Monday fine but then we had to head to the dr on Tuesday. Ear infection for her. My son came down with it Tuesday as well. Then I did. I headed to the dr on Wednesday. Sinus infection for me. Resting today and caring for my son with a temp of 102. I keep thinking that I don’t have time for this, there is so much to get done, why this week. But, you know what? In these little moments we have the opportunity to really slow down. And, I think, maybe, in these moments we recognize our need for the miracle of Christmas even more. And, so, may you have a blessed Christmas my friends, slowing down to rest in Jesus and the miracle of his birth.
If you are like me and need a little encouragement this week, I hope you can find some here.
