December on the Run!

Category: ,

Our homeschooling month so far has been very relaxed-not the activity level, just the school work actually being accomplished. Up though last week we were busy getting ready for a homeschool Christmas play involving about 40 children and almost as many families. It went so well.

This week the two big events have been my husband's birthday, having friends over for dinner that night, and preparing for another Christmas play at our church, as well as preparing for a wedding I'm leading worship for this weekend. Shopping? When does that enter in to the picture?

My question to myself is, is it possible to still begin something like Christmas around the World? How about Christmas Around the Mall? No. It just doesn't have the same ring to it. Seriously, I want to go through Christmas and have it be a wonderful and memorable time for our children.

So, if by chance there is a reader of Field Notes out there (and that is no plea for anything other than this....), please pray for me that the Lord will help me to divide and conquer: divide the necessary from the unnecessary, the wasted time from the productive time, and let God's plan for our December be revealed. Honestly, I don't feel like I've prepared much room for Him. Scoot over calendar, scoot over responsibilites and take your position behind the one who left Glory to inhabit my spirit.

I'm sorry I won't be of much help to you, Kathy, although I would love to be, but we don't celebrate Christmas because it is not honoring to the Father.

We are not to learn the way of the heathen and Christmas is a holiday that is rooted in paganism (the winter solstice and rebirth of the pagan sun god) and not the true birth of our Messiah.

So, all I can say is forget the presents, forget the tree and just focus on your relationship with Him and ask Him if you are right with Him or distracted by worldly holidays and traditions?

{Told you I wouldn't be much help} ((((Hugs))))

Michelle, you're always of great help, truly. I would want nothing less than your honest reply. There truly is NOTHING else in life, period, that matters than the priority He has. You've prompted me to look further into what you've said. Blessings and grace!
