Life in a Snow Globe

Christmas seems to shake up my world.

4. Prioritize holiday activities. Advance planning and commitment is necessary to give Christ his proper place in the holiday season. If we don't plan ahead, last minute frenzy can overwhelm us. If it does, Christmas will leave us exhausted with our tummies full and our souls bare.

As I watched the snow settle at the bottom of my snow globe, I noticed that the blizzard was merely a dusting of snow. Details that seem so important during the holiday rush will soon be forgotten. Investing in relationships with Jesus, family, friends and the least of these can echo the angels' proclamation of "peace on earth, good will toward men."

When we put our decorations away, we can look back on Christmas as a rich and meaningful celebration for us as well as for Christ. Let every heart prepare him room, even in a snow globe world.
