Twas the night before the blog tour and all through the web, I was searching and fretting; it was going to my head.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, “but they’re old, they don’t match, they’re not cute enough to share!”
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, and I freaked about garlands and flocked trees dancing in my head.
Away to Instagram I flew like a flash, “why did I enter this contest??” I asked.
“I don’t belong, I’m not as good, I need to run back to Target” the thoughts all say. When what to my wondering eyes should appear? But a tiny plastic baby nestled in fake plastic hay.
And then in a twinkling, my doubts disappear. The decorations are fun and they’re meant to inspire. But the true inspiration was there all the while.
He’s humble, He’s meek; His yoke is easy to bear. He invites me to rest and be at peace with him there.
I so often turn Him down for what I think will fulfill. But tonight, for now, I just need to be still.
True joy is in Him, and in my darkness, He is the Light.
So, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
See the rest of my Christmas home here.
