Well, we've opened the last of our presents, the turkey is in the oven, and we've just sat down to watch White Christmas (my favorite Christmas movie). What better time to break out the MacBook Pro download some new iTunes (via a record haul of $165 in giftcards... sheesh!) and blog it up.
It has been a good year. We've tried to scale back this year. After all, we've got a kid coming any day now. It is a good time to focus on what is really important. We went to Christmas Eve service at Sunset Presbyterian. I usually loathe Christmas/Easter services because the message tends focus on the "non-believers." You know, the people only there with family, in need of faith. I understand, this is a good time to reach out. But I have already bought in to the whole thing. So, I went in to the service with a jaded point of view.
We haven't been to church on a regular basis lately. Sometimes it is a challenge for Amy to get moving on Sunday mornings. Well, to be honest it is a little bit hard for me to get moving as well. Anyway, the music was phenomenal, the message, albeit highly focused, was good to hear again, and I left the church spiritually energized and emotionally centered. It was just what I needed. It made me even more resolved to focus on what is really important. Being spiritually centered (whether church is involved or not) is one of those important things.
I hope you find your emotional and spiritual center this Christmas. Whether that is going to church, going to the gym, or just making time for you it doesn't matter.
