Do you really need a Christmas tree, a wreath, and fairy lights? Is a Christmas playlist really necessary? Do you really need six types of Christmas cookies? Taking on everything at once and trying to control every detail will just cause unnecessary stress. Every family has their own traditions and special requirements - so stop and think about what matters most. Is it the decorations? The food? The people? Make a list of the three most important details for Christmas, and focus on them first and foremost. The other little details arent as important as you having a stress-free day and a good time!
Yuletide wouldnt be complete without the good old Christmas carols. If you are planning to hand out giveaways to your visitors dropping by this holiday season to greet your family, a CD recording of your family singing carols will be a great idea. You can also decorate the CD case with copies of your pictures with holiday greetings written as well. You can make this a yearly family tradition, each CD containing a different set of Christmas tunes the entire family recorded.
Jesus is there to remind you always that joy is the answer and that if you will but seek it, the things you desire in life will move to rendezvous with you. Here is the thing, by focusing on the realities that bring your emotions down and away from the joy that Jesus pointed us to, life attracts undesirable experiences that pull you from the energies of joy.
