“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” Joshua 1:9

Run, run Rudolph

Run, run Rudolph. Santa's gotta make it to town. Santa make him hurry, tell him to take the freeway now. Santa's got him running, running like a merry-go-round.

I don't know about you, but I always stress out a week from Christmas thinking about all the presents I have to make or buy. I always aim too high. I then realise at Christmas Eve that I don't need to have a present for everybody, because for me just spending time with the family is all I need. Laughing, singing, hiccuping from eating too much too quickly, and reading the Christmas story together.

If I didn't have my family with me, I would be missing the greatest present of all.

My Grandmother and I having some lovely joulutorttu and tea together with my parents.

So know I understand that it doesn't matter about those impending deadlines that so many of us have. Christmas, I believe, is about being thankful for all that we have now in this moment.

This Christmas season let's spend it together. For love is what makes the world go round, not presents <3

Merry Christmas readers!!
