Sunday Step Up And Presence

Hi friends, how are you?

Thursday night I went to a holiday market and this one vendor was selling children's books. I was immediately transferred back to the time when my kids were little and we would snuggle on the couch and read books. Oh I miss that time. Of course I told the vendor to enjoy these moments with her little ones. I really am inspired to find a way to read to my teenagers. That's a challenge.

1) Which book would interest them? 2) I'm boring ;) 3) they are never home together

Is there a better picture to describe what it means to be present then sitting on the couch and reading together?

Here is how the dictionary defines presence:

The state or fact of existing,occurring, or being present in a place or thing.

This is the definition I want to focus on today. Of course there is a presence of God with a deeply spiritual meaning.

So how can we be present this holiday season?

  • reading a book together

  • find advent stories and read them

  • read about Christmas in different countries

  • bake together

  • watch your favorite movie together

  • spend time deliberately with your spouse over a cup of coffee

  • ask your children what they would like to do with you ( doesn't have to take a lot of time or cost a lot of money)

  • do a craft together ( make a wreath? decorate a wreath? make an ornament? design your Christmas card? )

  • talk about your Christmas memories from your childhood

If Christmas is really hard because you lost a loved one, please click on this link below to join my group where i hosted a webinar on grief through the holidays. Once accepted, scroll down to the video.

I'd be happy to have you there.

You are loved. Deeply loved. Loved beyond measure.

Until next time, Isabelle
