On a personal note…
We decided to mix up things this year for Christmas. First, we’re not giving our 3 teenagers any physical gifts (first time ever). But don’t feel bad for them…our gift is a couple of days in Disneyworld. Second, instead of staying home for Christmas we’re visiting Jena’s mom in Florida (this is also a first).
Our overall goal is to spend more time together this Christmas, and spend less time/energy on buying stuff. Our kids are all in high school, and my oldest is a senior. Their time living at home is limited, so we want to cherish every moment we have them. This is one way we can do that.
I share that with you because maybe you need to mix something up this Christmas. It could be in your ministry, personal life, or family.
What would that look like for you?
(Update on January 10, 2020) – Days before our Disney trip my son, Joey, got Mono. He spent most of the Christmas break sick in bed, and we never made it to Florida. Bummer!
