Joys of Christmas

It is upon us.

The most wonderful, magical, merry time of the year.

Christmas.

I adore this time of year.

Everything about it brings me joy.

My inner child thrives on the colors, sounds and all around feeling of the season.

There is something so sweet about this holiday that rejuvenates me.

I love the hustle and bustle of shopping, finding the perfect gift for a loved one, wrapping it in festive paper, tying it up in bow and placing it under the tree and waiting to see their face as they tear open the packaging.

I love the smell of cinnamon, vanilla, and pine mingling in with the scent of freshly baked goods for friends and neighbors.

I love the cheesy, overplayed and outdated songs that rotate endlessly on radio.

The cool, crisp air intermingling with the first sip of hot chocolate is almost unmatchable.

I could go on and on, but what I love most about Christmas time is the peace I feel amongst the chaos.

Christmas brings a lot of business and to-do’s, but it is also the birthplace of hope and peace.

All those nights ago in that tiny manger, hope and peace was born into this world.

This season, as all the craziness and anticipation builds, I encourage you take the time to orient your heart towards the true meaning of the season.

It is easy to get lost in everything that this season brings, but never forget why we celebrate in the first place.
