I have been busy preparing for Christmas. I decorated the house, I made caramels with the kids, baked some cookies for an exchange, went to several programs. Jeff did most of the shopping this year thank goodness ( I don’t like that part).
But this year, the whole time, I have been consciously preparing my heart. Ya’ll know I love listening to Pandora and I created two Christmas stations–one was all accapella and instrumental groups, and the other was gospel. This way I surrounded myself with Christian music. It kept me humming hymns to God under my breath all day. It kept me focused on HIM.
I have been making art each morning, but a lot of it won’t make it to the blog, I let it get personal–scribbly journaling art. I was confessing, praying, readying my heart. And it has felt good.
I hope that you too have been able to prepare your heart for this season of glory and wonder.
