I am finished Christmas shopping, except for wrapping paper/ribbon, and creative wrapping for gift cards and cash. I try to make it fun at least. My side of the family lives in Minnesota, so I get their stuff done early and get the boxes on the way around the first week of December. I just need to wrap them up first.
I also have my Christmas cards, list and labels all ready for me to complete.
I really enjoy having this all done ahead of time, so I can focus on Christmas activities and not feel stressed.
Deliver us from just going through the motions and help us heed your call. Breathe into us the restlessness and courage to do something new, something saving, and something true, that we may be agents of your love and grace and know in our bones what it means to be your people.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
