Hopefully, all your preparation is done. Just a few short days left till Christmas Day! Malls, box stores, and grocery stores are busy with people getting last minute items. Houses of worship are busy too with final pageants taking place and final preparation for Christmas Eve services. We truly are in the final hour.
Right now, you may be rushed to take care of last-minute things. It might seem a little overwhelming, but take heart, things will be slowing down. And though this is usually the peak time for stress, it is important that we take the time for ourselves to be able to relax; to reflect, and recharge.
You might say, "but I have so much to do! How can I relax right now?" Many times in order to relax, we need a focus point. A reason to stop, and 'smell the roses.' Christmas Day has a focus point that should cause us to back up a little to get the full picture of this time of year. I leave you with this section of Scripture to help you get your focus on the 'why' of Christmas.
