A reminder of sorts....

I wrote this post last year on November 27th for Tuesday in other words. I wanted to share it again... this first day of December.

Jesus is the reason for the season. *Ü*

One reason we are so harried and hurried is that we make yesterday and tomorrow our business, when all that legitimately concerns us is today. If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda which God did not put there. Let us submit the list to Him and ask Him to indicate which items we must delete.
There is always time to do the will of God. If we are too busy to do that, we are too busy."~ Elisabeth Elliott ~

I love Elisabeth Elliott! I love this quote! It is so true! Especially this time of year! Party's for work, family and church gatherings, friends.... buying and making gifts, baking, creating.... you name it we as woman try to do it all, thinking we have the time.... right?

I think it is during this season we can sometimes loose focus on our daily lives and look to tomorrow. Stress can soon follow. Its hard to stay focussed on here and now..... I know this all to well! :) When I read the quote for this week this scripture also came to mind.

Luke 10:38-44 (NASB)

Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord's feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me." 41But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

Is this not fitting? As we move into the month of December and begin to feel the pull of perfectionism..... looking to what still needs to be done.... Let us remember Christ and take the time to sit at His feet. I know this is a cliche but, Jesus is the reason for the season! *Ü*

I hope you have a "Mary" Christmas through this holdiay season!!
