Getting Organized for the Holiday's

It's 3 days before Christmas, and it's a time for many of
us to be taking care of last-minute plans for family events
and gift-giving.

How can you get organized today? Before you rush out the
door, sit down and make a list of the musts for the next
3 days.

Also allow some room for the unexpected event that may
change your plans! It could be a needed car repair or a
sick family member.

If you don't know where to start today, just ask
yourself this:

What are the Absolute Musts when it comes to your
last-minute holiday preparations?

Write down the MUSTS for each day between now
and Christmas Day (if you celebrate Christmas),
and make those your top priority!

Get those things taken care of first, without
allowing interruptions that can wait a while.

Keep it simple - focus on making your loved ones
happy, having a beautiful serene home, and being
able to be prepared for the big day.

Take the time in the evenings to gather together as a family & have devotions that help you to refocus on Christ and His gift to us.

Also - carve out some time to relax and enjoy
Christmas Day too! We don't really get to celebrate
that many Christmas Days when you think about it.
So stop and smell the chestnuts roasting...
