I was reading an article a couple of weeks ago that talked about being stressed out. Then I was just realizing that this week begins the “holiday season”.

maryThis season, is it possible that we can help each other to not get too stressed out? Let’s try to help each other be like Mary, the mother of Jesus:

Luke 2:19 (NIV) But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

My prayer is that each one of us can enjoy each day during these last weeks of the year, slow down to appreciate the simple things, take in moments for reflection, and remember what God has given and sacrificed for us.

Your turn to share: What are some simple, practical ideas to help us to slow down and enjoy the moment at hand?
