We all have high hopes for the Christmas season.  We long to have a Merry Christmas, but too often it is more mess than merry.  We want it to be that time of joy, peace, laughter and love, but too often it’s a time of stress, anxiety, busyness, craziness, and conflict.  How do I fit everything in?  Will I be able to find the perfect gift?  Why I am out here fighting the traffic, the long lines and the rude people?  When will we have time to get the tree up, decorate the house, get to all those Christmas parties and still be able to maintain my sanity?  Have you ever asked any of those questions?  Let’s talk.

In what ways can we move from messy to merry?  In what ways can we experience a little peace and joy – a little merry in the midst of the messy?
