Only 55 Days Until Christmas!

christmas lightsThat's right. 55.

Are you panicking a little?  Thinking about all of the things that must transpire before then?  Arranging accommodations for out-of-town relatives, getting the Thanksgiving turkey and dishes prepared, clean the house, SHOP, wrap gifts, visit the local shelter...Christmas programming?

Spiritually Rich
