I mentioned that I'm looking for quietness this season! Certainly not something you hear much about when talking about Christmas - but an important place for my heart.
So, in the midst of all the busyness and bustle - how can I pursue and find quietness. Some of it I can find and some of it I need to create for myself.
I've been enjoying lovely quiet mornings ~ my children get up around 7:30 and since David is gone for work before 7, I make it my goal to get out to the living room by 7 a.m. I turn on the Christmas lights, sometimes I might make a cup of tea or hot chocolate and grab a book and a blanket. Then, I can snuggle in for a bit of reading and quiet before the day begins.
A favorite book that I read every December is Christ the Light of the World by Thomas Kinkade. I also try to read Shepherd's Abiding each December and have just started it over the weekend.
Just sitting and enjoying the Christmas lights, enjoying a time of prayer and thinking - starting my day out in peacefulness is starting the day out right. How do you create or find quietness during this busy season?
