Ever wish you had the formula? You know the one that others seem to have for making the holidays merry and bright.
They can’t seem to get enough of Christmas parades, Christmas parties, breakfasts with Santa, Christmas plays and on and on. Whew, makes me tired just writing about it.
That is their way of connecting with and celebrating the season. And that is fantastic.
For me the, joy of the season is finding the beauty of Christmas in a quieter way.
And that comes in the form of creating something of beauty. It might be decorating the home, making chocolate covered pretzels for the kids. Shopping with my love to buy gifts for the family ……… A cozy dinner party with friends to reflect on the beauty of Christ and the gifts He brought to us…. beautiful things.
A Sunday night Candle lit supper…lighting candles of hope, peace and hope…it’s all beauty.
This year I’ve been blessed with time to be inspired and create a winter collection of art.
I may have to put my paint brushes away for now. Finding the beauty of Christmas will shift into high gear creating meals and goodies to share with friends and family and I’ll savor the moments in a quiet, peaceful way.. that’s my style.
