12 Days Till Christmas!

Wow that came on fast! Are you ready for the kids to be on break? Are the gifts wrapped, menus planned, pictures with Santa?

There is so much to do in the next 2 weeks it can be overwhelming. In my Peace, Be Still Christmas Prayer Journal by Courtney Joseph at Day 13 talks about how Jesus asked for a boat to escape the crushing crowds in Mark 3:9. Courtney writes that “it is ok to rest.” Jesus did it too.

I have been with Corey for 13 peak seasons and each year gets harder and longer and more hours a day. I am thankful everyday for his job and his work ethic but even more now with kids in the mix its hard to know when he is able to just take over so that I can rest for even 30 minutes.

I was able to do this over the weekend and normally I would feel guilty missing out on the fun and watching the kids laugh and smile, this almost 3 hours was what I truly needed. I took a long bath, ate some left over Christmas Goodies, and fell asleep watching a Youtube video. Best Day Ever! Well 3 hours of the day! LOL

I want to encourage you to find a way to take a break and reset for your sanity. You need it and those around you will thank you as well.
