I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone, and it’s not just my jet-lagged brain. It was the trip through some stores today where Christmas music played in the background, and my eyes were filled with every shade of red and green.
I’m kind of a purist. There is a running disagreement of 21 years at my house about the time the Christmas tree goes up. My philosophy is one holiday at a time. It’s not so much a matter of principle for me but rather a grasp at sanity. I’m a linear thinking, one-thing-at-a-time kind of girl. Anybody else?
I am now thinking toward Christmas, though. Ready or not, here it comes! (If you’re struggling like me to get into gear, don’t miss Karen’s new ebook that she’s written with LeAnn Rice called Untangling Christmas. Fabulous!)
My mom is ahead of the game and has asked for sizes and wish-lists. I have lists of wishes all through the year, but when asked, I usually draw a blank. Maybe you’ve got the same problem or you’d like to receive something “just your size” this year rather than the bulky sweaters or clingy dresses sometimes found beneath the beautiful wrapping on the box with your name on it.
How about a gift certificate from Next Step Speaker Services?
It’s hint-dropping time so when your mom or hubby asks, be prepared! They can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get them all set up with a gift certificate. Imagine your delight when your stocking is filled this year with a gift that really becomes a gift to others as you share the message of Jesus.
