3 Ways to Keep Jesus in Focus this Christmas

Creative Ways to Keep Jesus in Focus this ChristmasThe house is decorated, the presents bought (but not yet wrapped) and we’ve managed to complete most of our daily Advent devotional. Christmas is just a few days away and we’re experiencing a mixture of exhaustion and excitement as we anticipate the celebration of our Savior’s birth. Do you feel it? That combination of weariness and wonder? Yeah, me too. It’s par for the course for most of us.

We fill our homes and our lives all throughout the holiday season and by the time Christmas Day rolls around, we’ve got no room left and nothing left to give. So here we are and we have a decision to make. . .trudge our way through to New Year’s Day or instead, bow down low beside the humble bed of our baby King and focus our eyes and our hearts on the wonder of his presence.

This week, I’m choosing to slow down and bow down and focus our family on Jesus so we don’t miss out on the beauty of the miracle we’ve been preparing for all month long.

Join me over at Grace for Moms to read more about Creative Ways to Focus on Jesus this week. . .
