I've decided it's time to say "yes" by saying "no." I'm getting off Facebook for the rest of December, and I'm taking a hiatus from blogging, too.
It's time to be still.
It's time to prepare my heart, our family, and our home to welcome the Christ Child.
I want this Advent to be a holy one. So, this month, instead of coming up with new blog posts or wasting time on Facebook, I'll be *trying* to imitate John the Baptist.
"He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30)
To that end, I have a few goals:
- Finalize my 2015 Board of Spiritual Directors. (Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa!)
- Continue to start the day before the children wake up in quiet prayer. It's a game changer!
- Since Advent is the start of a new liturgical year, it feels like the perfect time to create new resolutions. During the rest of Advent, I'll be re-reading A Mother's Rule of Life and revisiting/revising the 5 P's I came up with last Lent. Our home, our family, and our hearts have changed since then. It's time to make some updates! In case you don't remember, the 5 P's are:
I will be making baby steps to start implementing my new resolutions, and I'll share 'em with you once I'm back in 2015. Until then, I pray that you and your family have a blessed Advent and a Merry Christmas! Please continue to send your prayer intentions while I am away!
