Christmas giftSunday will be November 1st and even now my kids are making their Christmas wish lists.  This serves as a reminder to me that I'm not geared up for the holidays.  At least, my heart isn't ready to celebrate the reason for the season.

At a time when it's easy to get distracted by our "to do" list, Elizabeth George has prepared a special message to help us get focused on the reason why we celebrate.
