We browse Pinterest, home décor blogs, and our favorite magazines for Christmas inspiration. The stores are an uncomfortable jumble of Halloween clearance, Thanksgiving turkeys, and Christmas lights. We hum along to the Christmas songs pumped over grocery store speakers as we walk the aisles and fill our carts with the week’s necessities, long before the Thanksgiving menu has been planned. In the mail come the catalogs, emails with sneak peeks of Christmas sales, and excitement gathers around the latest, greatest, must-have toy of the season.
It’s no wonder we’re weary by the time Christmas comes around. If I could have you over for a cup of coffee and some cookies (store-bought, and you’re welcome for that), I would tell you the urgency the world tells us we need to feel during this season is false.
I’d be so honored if you’d go read the rest at sweet Tricia Goyer’s site? I’m so honored to guest post there this week!
