It's December 1st. Yes, it's already here. And if your mind starts rolling-out lists of things to do the moment you hear "December 1st", we have a little gift for you today. It's an invitation to just pause, slow down, inhale and breathe a little slower...and remember what the upcoming celebration of Christmas is really all about.
It's the birthday of Jesus Christ, the son of God, our Savior.
The snow-capped, whimsical-house artwork, pictured above, was hidden behind stacks of sketches and doodles in our studio today, and we pulled it out, just so we could read the first few words:
ALL IS CALM.
Don't you just feel better saying that? We do.
It's a lovely reminder to let one of the last things Jesus said on this earth really permeate our entire being and settle everything down just a bit:
"My peace I leave with you..." John 14:27
So, slip on a little of His peace today, His calm, His Presence, and watch, just watch, as everything turns bright.
All is calm, all is bright,
