Come and Gone: A Reflection

12.26.2015

Well it's December 26th 2015 and Christmas (xmas for many) has come and gone. Dare I say hallelujah that xmas is over? I have to say that this was the most non-stressful and peaceful Christmas that I've had in like ever. I mean really.

Woke up about 8 am.  Opened gifts around 9:30am.  Dinner was ready to eat around 11 am. I cooked a lot of the meal the day before and we ate all day.  Chilled and enjoyed my family with there gifts.  My Christmas want this year was very humble. I would like some cute pajamas and some good house shoes, please.  Done and done. I was so content. Watched a little Youtube. Cleaned a little house, yup I washed dishes, vacuumed the carpet, and tidied up the living room.  Welcomed my brother and his girlfriend.  They stopped by to eat and hangout.  After they left, I tackled my hair then  I showered and threw on a pair of my new comfy pajamas. It was a wrap.

Working up to Christmas I reminded myself, it's not about the gifts.  It's not about me, it's not even about them. I made a conscious effort not to get caught up in the world's commercialized xmas.  And on Christmas there was a peace that was with me all the day long.  It was the peace and acknowledgement of Christ our Lord. The reason for the season.
