This Christmas, let your life be a living testimony that God’s plan for you is good. So care for yourself as a witness to the World that He cares for you
This Christmas make it more about Christ’s characteristics (giving, loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, goodness, faithful, gentle, selfless and self-controlled) and less about the World’s traditions and characteristics that leave most people feeling (obligated, rushed, frenzied, materialistic, greedy, bitter, resentful, competitive, indulgent, short-tempered, exhausted, and worn out)
Don’t feel like decking the halls – don’t – keep it simple this year.
Don’t feel like being tied to debt or obligated to exchange gifts – don’t- Make homemade gifts or write out a special card. Or just request that their presence is better than presents this year. It doesn’t have to be the latest greatest gadget to be meaningful.
Don’t want to go to every event or party – don’t go. Stay home and watch Hallmark channel in your PJ’s. Sip cocoa by the fire with a good book.
Don’t want to cook and bake for days – don’t do it – buy them or downscale the menu. Keep it simple!
Whatever is best for you this Christmas – do that.
Your friends and family love you and want you to be the best version you can be. So use your best yes and find your no.
No is a complete sentence and requires no explanation.
Dare to be Different – not just this Christmas but every day too!
