Somehow, just like that, it’s December already. And the carols are playing. The storefronts are buzzing. The calendar is filling.
Is this how the whole month will go?
How do we PAUSE and THINK through some intentional steps to celebrating this beautiful season? That’s just it. We pause. If only for a moment, pause and refocus on the only thing that truly matters this season: Jesus. Then pray and ask God to direct your next step.
Advent (the period beginning 4 Sundays before Christmas) can be a meaningful season, as we intentionally celebrate Jesus’ first coming, and refocus on His second coming.
