At least, that’s the plan. My kids have done their Christmas shopping (almost) but I haven’t bought a single present. (Ok. I did buy one – it’s a secret.) But that’s all.
My plan was to organize and clean my house in preparation for my first time to host my family at my house. I’m crafting. Actually, I’m procrastinating with a procrastination.
I started a present two years ago and decided I wanted to finish it before the New Year, with fresh starts and all… so I’m doing it today.
Y’all it’s the cutest, cleverest, most practical gift I’ve done. I can’t wait to share it with you. But I’m waiting until I’m done, then it will get it’s own post. (and I have to give it first!)
Here’s the deal – I could be stressed. I’m sewing for heaven’s sake. I stress when I sew. (That’s why I don’t sew very often, hence the two year time span.) BUT I made a concious decision to NOT stress.
Everything in me tells me to stress right now. I’m making a present instead of housecleaning or Christmas shopping. I’m pausing in my crafting to blog about it. I’m thinking I AM CRAZY. I want to stress. But I won’t.
My challenge to you –
Decide not to stress.
Then simply Don’t Do It.
When you feel the stress taking hold, stop and pray. Read some scripture. Breathe.
Enjoy this time.
I know everything will fall into place. And if it doesn’t… Still don’t stress!
