Works for Me Wednesday

Here's a works for me Wednesday post, first in a long time. I have stretched myself too thin this year. Having a long commute to work justs adds to everything. I love to decorate for Christmas. I have a lovely collection of Nativities I like to put out. I have decided that only a few will got out this year. My parents are staying with us for a week, but I am not hosting any parties at my house. It is kind of hard, because I do enjoy decorating. There is a possibility I night get to it this weekend. It will not diminish the joy of Christmas and the celebration of the birth of Christ.

Giving myself permission not to have my house decorated to the nines. That works for me.

I'm in the same boat. Stretched too thin between work, new baby and demanding church callings. We put up a nativity, a wreath on the door, and a simple earthy looking tree. And it's actually giving me more time to focus on the real meaning of the season.

Good for you. I am doing the same thing. By not putting so much energy into decorating and "froofing" the house I will hav more energy and more time for what really matters, my family.
