I fought it through many feelings of frustration, anger, tears, sadness, and then at a biblestudy--a wise mom simply said...."don't fight the seasons of life; just like you cannot fight a baby going from crawling to walking....you need to allow yourself the down time to refresh ....." This thought brought me to the faint memory of my blog...that is supposed to be about just that. What symbolizes "refreshing" more than the evergreen of a Christmas tree? Ahh...how perfect a metaphor for the season! (I love to wax poetic)
|Beautiful, fresh, evergreen!|
|If I had my choice--the couch would be this one! Down stuffed and slipped! :o)|
I am looking forward to the Christmas season and the New Year ahead....and while I may not be running at full speed....I will be moving in respect to the downtime that is now incorporated into the fullness of life.
Fun ideas to try for the Season: Lit Baskets
This beautiful "lit" basket was done by a friend. Such a clever idea for an entry or porch area. Use a great basket and fresh greenery with a battery operated strand of white lights!
Here is another one with a vintage card using pepermint lights! Sooo cute!
