It seems as though the more I hear people talk about the holiday season; the more I hear complaints that immediately follow.  Unfortunately this time of year stress creeps in and steals our joy from what should be one of the happiest seasons of all.  

The hustle and bustle of finding “the perfect gift”, wrapping presents, baking, preparing family dinners, managing house guests it can all become overwhelming.

Take some time this week to STOP stressing; SLOW down and intentionally LOVE.  Share and spread love to those you care about the most and those who you do not know at all.  Put aside the headline news, the political affiliations, religious differences and focus on what matters most.  

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Cor 13:13

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you; your family, and loved ones!
