We decided as a family a few weeks ago we were going to put Christmas up early!
It’s been interesting how many people I’ve read and heard are doing the same thing!
These are our reasons and how we are going to make sure Thanksgiving is still part of it and not crowded out:
We are going to create a gratitude jar that these little wooden hearts I have will have a gratitude written on them each day through Thanksgiving and even after….
Why we did it?
We wanted to have that very visual reminder that Christ is the reason for hope….for everything!
This year hasn’t been an easy one for anyone….and it’s naive for us to think it’s all just going to go away…..
There are days the heaviness of how divided we are as the body of Christ is very heartbreaking….and we as a family wanted to be reminded of how we are fighting the good fight….that His path is narrow and frustrating at times……but it is the path to true freedom….
Soooo we are celebrating the hope Christ represents….and how his coming years ago was for our salvation….
And His future coming is for our purification….atleast that’s how I see it…lol….
Are you planning to put your Christmas tree and decorations up early?
And what is your reason why you have or haven’t?!
Many blessings and prayers always,
