Merry Belated Christmas and Happy New Year! I’m not usually the most merry person around Christmas time. I am so prone to let the stress of family, singleness, presents, traffic, etc. get the best of me. I usually come to peace with things this season by realizing that those things I struggle with are exactly why I need Jesus and He came into this world to be near to my brokenness. And this year, I was able to find a little Christmas magic just in time.
I started to feel it when I decided to take the advice of my new Royal Farms friend and just “be.” I’m a big quality time person so the best thing about Christmas this year was the people I got to spend time with.
My favorite Christmas song is Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. It shows what I like Christmas to be about, the people (other than Jesus being born of course).
Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight
Here we are as in olden days happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas now..
I always think of my siblings and cousins with this song. Over the years, our family has been through a lot, but now we love the time we have together so much more and it’s just like the old days but better.
All the girl cousins and nan
We made our annual stop at “candyland” aka a random house that we frolic through every year after the lights in Hampden. It’s so magical and I’m convinced one of us need to get married there one day 🙂 What are some of your holiday traditions?
