Tis' the season to be merry ... and stressed. Happy Holidays vs. Merry CHRISTmas? Making a list and checking it twice … or three times to be sure we gifted everyone?  This can add up to stress in a season that is supposed to be most precious. But we each have a choice—a choice to be intentional about our focus on the Savior. We can bow down and worship like the shepherds did, or we can be bogged down with activities, events, and other things that distract us.

Keeping Christ in Christmas is more than just a Christmas card phrase. When we are intentional about our focus on worshipping the King, our hearts are changed, our priorities realigned, and the magnificence of the Season is made real. We worship because HE is worthy of our praise, our adoration, our wonder, our adoration, and our awe.


As you sing the songs of Christmas, think about these things… O Come, Let us adore Him” because He deserves it (Rev. 4:11), created us for that purpose (Romans 11:36-12:1), delights in the praise of His people (Psalm 149:4).

As you celebrate Christmas, enjoy each other, and praise and worship Him with intentionality.  You’ll be glad you did … and so will HE.


We love you!

Suzie along with Rachel, Kim, Cindy, and Jeannie
