There Is Still Time Before The Holidays

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

Oh no, it's only May, yet I recently saw an article about remodeling before Christmas. It gets earlier every year and can create great stress and expectations. Here it is not even half way to December 25, yet we are made to feel we better hurry up, like now, or else.

Why not just enjoy life and not get all caught up in making things perfect? That is unless you are throwing a party for the Queen of England or something. There is nothing wrong with planning home improvements, but this ad struck me as funny in that it was specifically for the 'holidays'  known to most as 'Christmas'. So please relax and do not stress right now about decorating and shopping and such.

 Each and every day of your life, wake up and thank God for giving you breath. Then make an effort to go into your day being kind and peaceful. This may be difficult for those of you in the business world but at least give it a try. When your are tempted to put others down or speak ugly, stop. You get the idea. Don't worry about Christmas, just take care of today.

PRAYER: I thank you for another day of life. Things may not always be perfect but I rejoice and know you love me Lord. When I am tempted to complain help me stop instead and give praise for something. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Good message. Worry will not solve anything. I sometimes have to look for the praiseworthy items in a sea of possible troubling thoughts.
