Christmas spirit

I am a Christmas freak. Starting October? Christmas music plays and I start harassing my husband to put up decorations. Last year I was completely done with my shopping by Black Friday. I love Christmas. But this? Today is December 1st and I have no Christmas spirit.

I have some decorations up and I have Christmas music playing – but the town we live in? Well let’s put it this way – road rage surges .. shootings weekly … no decoration at all on the streets. Oh! And yesterday? It was 75 degrees.

It doesn’t feel like Christmas.

I know, I know. It’s just my new normal that I have to get used to. But it’s hard. I just want to dig in to my bed and shut out everything. But I know that’s my depression. I know it’s lies of the enemy to try and ruin my kids memories. So I fight through.

For my kids.

If you think about it? It’s just like the Christian life ya know? we go through challenges … trials … times of testing … whatever you want to call it .. and we don’t feel like being a Christian.

We start to lose sight of what matters. Our relationship with God. But our job? Our job is to fight. Fight for our relationship with God. For our lives, people.

I encourage you my friend – never ever give up.


And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Galatians 6:9
