Are you an early decorator? Personally, I am not that person. But as we have begun to approach the Christmas Season, holiday cheer is at an all time high. Literally the day after Halloween, Christmas decorations were up for sale in the stores. As a former retail employee, I know that stores do this for a reason, they call it savoring, which is a way to fully absorb life’s special moments. In other words, thinking about and planning a holiday extends its bliss beyond a few short weeks. And Collectively we are all excited for the holidays this year more than ever, we can’t wait for the joy that that Christmas will bring. Rightfully so, because It’s been a draining year for all of us. So, this year as a family we decided to do something different, to decorate early and create a sense of excitement and joy in our household. We wanted to skip to the joy of Christmas. Because all of us need joy and I believe that we should be intentional about finding joy in our circumstances and then remembering who the provider of said joy is. Psalm 5:11 reminds us that those who find a place of refuge in Jesus have endless joy. How cool is that! Because of our relationship with Christ, we have access to a lasting joy. You and I can choose to skip to the joy that we as believers are promised. I challenge you this week to find that joy and begin to encourage joy in your household and your community’s however that looks for you. Be blessed and choose joy today.
