Are you finding yourselves where I have sooooo many times in past seasons trying to create the PERFECT HOLIDAY for your friends and family and being frennzied the whole time??
If we are stressed over trying to figure out how to make a perfect, memorable, special, meaningful holiday..well STOP PLEASE!! GOD'S Word says in Phil. 4:6&7 " BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, WITH THANKSGIVING, LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN TO GOD; AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD OUR HEARTS AND MINDS. Praise God I want that peace during this season!!
We need to STOP and remember the reason for both HOLIDAYS coming up Tomorrow and CHRISTmas..... and that is JESUS HE alone is the reason for our celebrations!! If we place our focus on details and perfection and miss the real mark JESUS CHRIST then we have done all we have in vain!! The decor and food of the seasons come and go yet the heart memories last yet a life time are we creating memories that our fond and loving centered on CHRIST or are we leaving memories of a frenzied mommy who focuses on Perfection and self ouch I have in the past hate to admit!! I ask you this question do you want to be a Martha this holiday season crazy and running all over to reach a perfect enviornment for Christ and miss the chance to sit quietly at His feet or do we want to be a Mary waiting for those moments to sit at His feet and gleen how amazing this season truly is I know my prayer is for all of us to let our quest for "PERFECTION" go this Thanksgiving instead of a frazzled mom who has her table adorned to perfection and food cooked perfectly and instead RELAX and give my family and friends memories of THANKSGIVING NOT "perfection". May we Thank God this THANKSGIVING for the MANY Blessings He Bestows on His Children ....."LET US PRAISE THE LORD TOGETHER"
Happy Thanksgiving Blog Friends!
Until Next Time as we SERVE the King Together,
