Declaring War On Christmas!


Today I declared war! A war on what? A war between Christmas and I. The word war usually conjures up distress, death and destruction. This war of mine is the complete opposite. A few hours ago, in the middle of a busy day I made a decision I am going to enjoy the Christmas season and it begins tonight! This does not mean that I will not listen to people who are hurting or going through tough times. Instead it means that I set up a few challenges for myself. I am determined to celebrate the season and the birth of Jesus beginning tonight to January 1, 2013! Yes, determined, very determined.

Tonight I begin by writing this post. Earlier I sorted through Christmas movies and placed them in my instant folder. I stopped watching them a few years ago in the middle of really tough losses in life. In fact right now, playing in the background is a Christmas themed movie. Since I have no Christmas decorations left, I might even replace a few and decorate the space I call home. My plans are to say yes, whenever I can to spend time with friends and with new friends God brings my way.

In fact I ask for your patience my friends, because I just may go a little overboard. In the middle of the season I am going on a search. A search of what Christmas is for me this year, for such a time as this. How about you? Are you in need of a makeover this Christmas? If we wait for the perfect year to enjoy the season, it will never arrive. This is the season to give it a try! Will you join me in living in the season we call today?

This year I seem to be gravitating to Hallmark Movies. This is the season to watching and listening to stories about life. Nancy J.
