The celebration and joy of Christmas seem long past, except for the fact that my house is still buried in paper and boxes. My 2-year-old keeps getting into and losing my jewelry and writing all over everything! Oh, and the below-zero temperatures make it feel a bit like I am living in a deep freeze, as well! I think the after-Christmas blues are taking up residence, and that is not okay with me!
To get to the root of the problem, I have begun to ask myself why? Why do I really feel this way? I love Christmas and everything it represents; in particular, that the light of the world came into darkness to give us a hope and a future, bright and eternal! I have so much to be thankful for: I literally just talked about it in last week’s post! I need an attitude adjustment!
Reclaiming My Joy
With that thought, I am reminded of something I wrote earlier this year, which is where I am headed to refresh my mind and to remind myself of all the Lord has done for me! Join me as I take a dose of my own medicine in learning to celebrate from the inside out here!
I have said it before and I am sure I will say it many times again: I don’t have everything figured out. One of the joys of life is to encourage others and to be encouraged by others, and I am so thankful for the encouragement and ideas you share with me! This blog is a journey in learning, and I am so blessed by those of you who choose to join me as we discover what it really means to live a life worth celebrating!
Here’s to a blessed new year filled with celebration from the heart and all the joy our hearts can hold!
