‘Tis the season to prepare for the holidays! Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas will be here soon – before we know it, in the blink of an eye, before we can say ‘Jingle Bells’. Soon we will be up to our elbows in meal prep, gift buying and wrapping, card-mailing, and all too often succumbing to the pull of perfection.

Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas can be calm. They can be fun. They can be dreamy and chaotic and joyful, and He can meet us right where we are (even if that’s wrapping gifts at 2am on December 24th) to calm our hearts and remind us of what His humble birth means for our lives.
