Matt and I have started the slow+sacred advent by Jennifer Naraki (one of the ladies in my favorite podcast: At Home). I've never done any sort of advent before, and it's a beautiful collection of reminders that God sent His Son Jesus to us. That's the ultimate gift. The only everlasting gift.
As we enter December and we're tempted to get overwhelmed with activities and duties and traditions, take time to love your family. Take time let the Holy Spirit work His fruit in your life: Love. Joy. Peace. Longsuffering. Gentleness. Goodness. Faith. Meekness. Temperance.
I could use more of those fruits in my life. How about you?
