Slow down O Happy Days…

December is here again!

How time truly flies by And yet why are we still so impatient, so easily bored? Like my son, Noah here in the photo (or maybe he’s just bored waiting for us to finish kissing sorry noah, mommy and daddy will kiss forever!)

Back to all the rush and excitement and yet being bored and impatient.. This Season is rushing by so fast I tell you, it’s almost December 2 and before you know it, it’s 2018 and then it’s Christmas again! There are Christmas parties and celebrations left and right, that Christmas gift list you need to finish, the shopping, the deadlines, etc etc etc… and before we know it, we’re too tired to even enjoy our Christmas day… so let us focus not on the gifts, the parties, the traffic, the ‘gastos’ or the food.. Instead,

focus on the One reason this season is all about. “JESUS”.

Use this time to teach our children and to remind ourselves to find the the joy in waiting, to be thankful, to forgive and receive forgiveness, to stop and not to rush… (except to rush to Jesus)

Enjoy this time and remember what God has done for us, what an amazing gift God has given all of us through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour!

Oh Happy Day! When Jesus was born on Christmas Day!
