I feel like I have failed on some fronts when I realized that my Christmas gift shopping for some relatives is undone (and will be done by Monday afternoon so they might arrive in time!) My Christmas cards will be holiday ones arriving sometime near the start of 2012.
But, I keep reminding myself that some of these things are more ‘trappings’ of the holidays than celebrating Christmas. God is far more concerned with what is in my heart than what presents I send to my family.
Where I do feel like I have fallen is writing multiple times a week for this meme. Last week had me bogged down with wrapping up ‘loose ends’ in the review department that I was tapped out for sharing the spiritual. So, for the next few weeks I am trying to prioritize the faith based posting.
I’ll be sharing more reflections and ideas throughout the week (as I find time to write.) I hope you’ll join me for the ride.
My friend Trish over at A House Upon the Rock is joining me hosting this 40 day meme. We will not be doing a daily link-up, but rather a weekly one. If you blog more than once a week, please add each linkto the link-up, we’d love to find you and read what you are doing and learning as you seek Him.
Please consider joining us as we Seek Him for the next 40 days. We will celebrate from the first day of Advent through Epiphany on Jan. 6th.
For those participating, please note again, that we will be hosting a weekly link-up. Today, if you’d like to share how you are Seeking Him during this Advent Season , slip in the direct URL to your exact post.
Thank you for joining us. I look forward to reading your posts (as many as I possibly can) as we share what we are doing to prepare our hearts for the most wonderful gift God gave us ~ Jesus Christ.
