If you’re hoping for perfection in your Christmas decorating or baking or hosting, give it up now!
Just do what needs to be done and be content with how it turns out. And for Pete’s sake, don’t put a lot of expectation on the gifts being received with loads of enthusiasm, or if the gifts are non-existent. But remember the greatest gift that came into the world can’t be outdone. You can honor the Lord most by a heart that is continually worshiping and not overworking!
So, as a perfectionist, I put this to the test by letting my grandson help me roll out the gingerbread boys and place their eyes and buttons with red hots. Two things I learned very quickly: he doesn’t know he isn’t supposed to eat raw dough and secondly, he can pop a red hot in his mouth faster than I can blink!!
Have fun this Christmas season with a heart full by maintaining a focus on the Savior!
The grandson’s focus kept shifting to the Red Hots. I did have these lofty thoughts of a “Gram & Tot Cooking Show,” but after the “FUN” we had making gingerbread boys, I have re-thought those thoughts! 😉
I’m sure his mama and dada will love them no matter what they look like! 😉 Gift for mama & dada – check
Have a very joy-filled Christmas!
