Charming Looks for Holiday & Super Saturday Sales to Slay!

Just a week before Christmas – perhaps a long-awaited reunion for many around the globe. If you’re traveling like millions will be, I pray the journey will be gentle and safe. I hope however you spend the holiday, you will do it with PRESENCE and without pressures for PERFECTION. This is so much easier said than done. We tend to expect too much of ourselves and others (lookin’ at YOU, family get-together stress!) when it comes to the holidays, yet what a blessing to truly occupy the present moment and see, truly SEE the gifts and Giver with grace. Think you just don’t have it in you? Been there. That’s when I seek the grace for help to see, for help to get centered. For folks starting or finishing any shopping, Super Saturday Sales to Slay & Charming Looks for Holiday is comin’ right up.

I have a hoop wreath on our front door, and ya know, I think it’s all about perspective.

While some might see an unfinished, partial wreath, I see a smile. 🙂

Oh, this thought from Ann Voskamp above! The thing about that method is it also works for loving things including God. If you start with the small things, love can grow.

Because I need to hear it each and every day. The reminder to BECOME what we long for may seem daunting until we recognize that it can happen as we let go.

Thinking of you with my heart wide open and hoping as await Christmas we can align with a peaceful flow that is always flowing. Did you read my reflections about how such flow feels? Something mysterious and amazing happens when we allow the reality of the season to simply be reality with minimal resistance and interference from our control-hungry selves. The thing is, we’re going to be changed by the realities that come, and I’m here to remind you that such change is BECOMING. xox

Peace to you right where you are.
