**Why is it so easy for us to get distracted to remember what Christmas Day is really about**

**Why is it so easy for us to get distracted to remember what Christmas Day is really about**

This is my family.

*

We sometimes dress up and smile nicely when mommy says to.

*

I’m always running all over the place like a crazy person to get the #30minfamilyfun supplies.

*

But in the midst all of this, how often do I really stop to think about Jesus. Not nearly as often as I should, I can tell you that for sure.

*

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the festivities and traditions of the Christmas season, and certainly the parties. I participate in all of these things myself and enjoy most all of it, guys, my kids drive me crazy! But it sure is easy to miss out on the meaning of Christmas.

*

I miss out on Jesus when my schedule is filled to the top with kids, work, life, husband and family activities. It doesn’t leave much room for quiet time, prayer or bible study. You would think I have all the time, I work at a church. 😬😬

*

The best way to fight the temptation of choosing activity over time with Jesus is to simply spend time with Him! Prioritize this by making it into your Christmas traditions.

*

If you do, you will find that nothing, not even the gifts under your tree, can compare to spending time in the presence of Jesus.

*

Maybe this is a hard time for you cause you don’t have great family memories. I promise you, if you pray and ask for peace you will get it. Don’t lose faith, that was the past and I know it will be hard to forget but move forward daily with Him and you will emotionally feel better. If you ever need prayer just ask. Don’t be embarrassed, I would love to pray for you and with you!

*

Don’t lose sight of Him this Christmas, He is the honored guest, after all!

*

Merry Christmas 🎄🎁

love, me
