Every year at this time, I say to myself, “next year I’m not doing gifts and holiday stuff last minute.” Every. Year. 

It’s time to stop. I am not going to beat myself up for not having a Pinterest Christmas this year. I will not focus on what I did not do. 

Our enemy wants to steal the gift of Christmas from us, make us blind to the love that came to us in the most humble of wrapping. We have been given amazing grace through our savior. Worth celebrating? Yes. 

Am I celebrating or is it about something else every year?

We lose this battle to celebrate Jesus when we become consumed with making everything beautiful “enough” and spending “enough” for gifts. He is truly enough and has declared us “enough” through his sacrifice. 

I hope you enjoy rereading this post.
