I wish December would linger like January and February do.  The month where I am supposed to be pausing and reflecting more on the magnitude of God’s perfect plan, I can barely find the time.  Before I can even soak it in, its usually over.  December leaves us and I am met with the unending darkness of winter.

I am trying this year to find out how to make the joy of December cross over into those dark winter months of January and February.  I am trying to figure out how to make that joy that comes with Christmas so real and tangible that it can’t help but soak all the areas of my life for months to come.

I am trying to decide what are those eternal joy giving things or experiences that come this time of year?  What do I need to make sure happens this advent season?  Where do I need to be steering my heart?

Is it even the things I do that help me contain this joy or is it just the simple reminder that there is joy there if I choose to seek it?


Its really all I want this Christmas.  I want joy to continually overflow from my heart so that it pours out daily over my kids.  I want my husband to know that no matter what happens today or any day in the future, I will choose JOY.  I want to see people through eyes that have the JOY of the Lord in them.

I want to seek it.

I want to give it.

I want to live it.


 May the God of hope fill you with all JOY and peace as you trust in him,

so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13
