It’s hard being a “blogger” in December. I really don’t feel like I have much time to think, let alone write! I just posted my facebook status as “Darla is considering buying reindeer antlers for her car and singing ‘Run Run Reindeer’ as she crazily drives around town trying to get everything done!” I’m serious.
“Run, Run Reindeer” was the song Savannah’s jazz class danced to tonight and I really thought….I totally feel like the reindeer. There are days I am double and triple booked for things I’d like to do, places I’d like to go….all in the spirit of the season where we sing carols with lines such as “all is CALM”!
Don’t get me wrong….I’ve enjoyed the events, the friends, the food, the fun. It’s just that there are days I wish I could push the pause button on it all. I’d like to pause to enjoy all that the season represents, pause to enjoy the wonder of the children, pause to worship the newborn King.
Christmas is about more than just getting through it. It’s about celebrating the reason for it.
Let the celebration of our Saviour’s birth continue…but for now, I’m going to try to go “sleep in Heavenly Peace”.
And tomorrow I’m going to try to remember, every now and then, to pause.
