Intentional Holiday Living…

I can feel my holiday angst growing within me….

I hate to admit that, after all, it isn’t even Thanksgiving…

I have started to make lists about what gifts I want to buy….

I want to be intentional about my gifts, and not start buying because I pass a good deal….

I have started to write the list of clues for gift giving.

I want to be intentional about each clue, identifying key events in the lives of my nieces and nephews over the last year…

 

I look forward to each holiday meal…

I want to be intentional about enjoying and not indulging…

I know that holidays come with family stress.  We are a large group with lots of opinions. It is wonderful almost all of the time….

I want to be intentional by breathing deeply and staying engaged….

I love the busyness and I know that if I am too busy I will not like my edginess…

I want to be intentional about my resting and my sleeping and my exercising….

and so I would guess you hear my desire and commitment….

I wonder what you plan to be intentional about during the coming weeks….

I encourage you to be specific and be intentional….and enjoy the journey!
