- Spend each morning, before the sun rises, in front of the Christmas tree with just the lights on - reflecting on His light, His warm embrace on my life, reflecting on what Jesus has done for me
- Take everything down a notch.....take some things off the calendar, less decorations, simplify to provide more reflection and family time
- Meditate on the scriptures that speak towards the Advent season - Week 1 Hope; Week 2 Peace; Week 3 Joy; Week 4 Love
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."
