Just ENJOY it!

Well, folks, it's that time of year again. I'm not sure HOW it already got to be this time of year again. But it's here, nevertheless. And you know what? I'm --- so --- EXCITED! I like Thanksgiving and Christmas time so much!

The only thing about it is that it sometimes seems to go by so fast, you don't always get to do all the things you wanted to do, and then you have this feeling of disappointment as the new year rolls around. I think that probably has happened to all of us at some point.

Though, I suppose we all have to face the fact that we most likely won't get to do EVERY single little thing that we want to do during the holidays; unless decorating, baking, and watching Christmas movies is ALL you do. But --- I don't know if you've noticed --- it's really hard to do that. Other things in life just get in the way sometimes, and there's not too much we can do about it.

BUT what we CAN do is just decide to have a great time at Thanksgiving and Christmastime no matter what we got done or didn't have enough time to do. In fact, my mom and I were planning on making a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner this year, but it just got too late, so we didn't end up getting around to it. I was somewhat disappointed at first that we didn't get to make one, but then I thought, "Am I going to let a little thing like this ruin Thanksgiving for me?" I sure didn't want it to. So you know what --- I just decided to have a GREAT TIME this Thanksgiving and thank God for everything he's given me, no matter what's on our table or what we do. As in the words of Jacques Paganel, I am just going to...
Besides, a lot of that extra stuff we do on Thanksgiving and Christmas isn't always what they're really about. It's about being thankful to God for all we have; it's about Jesus being willing to be born into this world so that he could one day die in our place. That's what it's all about.

I very much encourage you to just enjoy this season, too. No matter what other things you have time for or don't, never forget to make time to just ENJOY this wonderfully exciting time of year and thank our gracious Creator for all the blessings he gives to us!

Now go, get off the computer. 

Spend time with your family this Thanksgiving. ENJOY IT!

Have a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING, everyone!

    This is such a good post. Thank you so much for the reminder! You're right--the important thing in this wonderful season is to just BE--and thank the Lord for the blessings He's sent.


  2. I thought you might like that... ;D

    And thank you for the comment! Yes, indeed. :)

  3. YES!!!! This is so true! I have to remember that about life in general too, when things don't go as planned...there's still so much good! (I found your blog while blog-hopping and I really enjoy it! <3 So I'm reading and commenting on old posts, lol. :))

    1. Yes, it's true. :) Even after writing this post I've still had to go back and remind myself not to get so caught up in all the extra stuff and just live in the moment, especially during Christmastime. :)

      Oh, thank you! I'm so glad you like it! ^_^ (I'm going to try posting more regularly on here in the near future.)

  4. Whoops, I totally missed this comment from last year. O_O Oh well, hello there madear. ;)
    I think it's a work in progress for a lot of people. I know it is for me. I'm at that point now where everyone wants to know what the next step for me is...and I really have on idea. I'm just waiting and trusting God to take me moment by moment. Doesn't make it easy all the time though!
