It’s here! The Christmas season has arrived and like a child playing hide and seek it shouts “Ready or not, here I come!” Are you ready?
No, I don’t mean is your shopping done. I don’t mean is your tree up and decorated. I’m not talking about lists or agendas…I’m talking about your heart.
My heart is a tender little thing. It cannot be rushed. It cannot be ordered around. It must be wooed. I need quiet moments, walks outside, music…(like the album below.)
I need to write and to think. I need to create and look for beauty. I need to pray and I need my people to remind me that I need these things when I forget…
What does your heart need? Our time here is short. We only have today. What are you putting off today that your heart needs? What are the ways you tune your heart for Christmas? What woos your soul, what focuses your mind, what captures your heart?
I’m looking for ways that I can intentionally be #tuningmyheartthischirstmas
Maybe it is capturing a sunset, maybe it is moments spent with my kids, maybe it is listening in the quiet, maybe it is loving fiercely with my words and my time. Want to join me?
We are very different. My ways of intentionally #tuningmyheartthischristmas will look different than yours. That’s okay, that’s a good thing. Yet, maybe we can learn from one another, yes? Perhaps we can encourage each other to see past the lines and the final exams and the matching christmas outfits and the frantic race for the good parking spot and see what ultimately matters. Our hearts.
So I would invite you to join in! You can post on Facebook, or Instagram, or Twitter and use the hashtag: #tuningmyheartthischristmas
Is it a book or a devotional you are reading? Or a song? A photo? A verse? A line from a christmas movie? An artfully crafted latte? A moment spent with a special person? I’m looking forward to seeing how you woo your heart to stay tender to the things of God this season.
