I'm not a holiday person.
The pressure has always been just a little too much for me. One chance, one day, once a year to have both an internal and external response to an occasion worthy of note. It's way too much.
So for a long time my response was to just not do it, to roll my eyes and scoff a little bit. It was always easier to not care at all then to care and know that I wasn't going to nail it.
From a few steps back I can see the crazy going on there, no need to point it out to me. Thankyouverymuch.
As crazy as it is to beg your husband to just go ahead and throw out the Christmas Tree altogether, I sometimes get the sense that we are perfectly happy throwing out the twinkle lights in our lives.
The little wins.
Yes, I lost my temper with my kids this week, but I remembered to look them in the eyes and apologize.
Perfect? Nope. Good enough? Yes.
Noticing good isn't just a little pat on the back to get us through another week, it's worship. Because at it's core, everything good, even everything good enough, comes from God.
When we don't celebrate good enough we are failing to acknowledge the freedom song ringing all around us. So this month? Saturdays will be for Celebrating. Particularly celebrating together.
What was good enough this week? Where can you rest in God's grace?
I'd love to hear the work going on in your heart.
