The Christmas Pause

Have you flown right through Thanksgiving and into Christmas decorating, shopping, party planning, and card writing?

It’s always been that way for me. There are things to do so I set out to accomplish Christmas.

This year – I want it to be different. I have intended for it to be different for a long time. But I wake up on December 24th and realize that I slipped back into the routine and missed much of what I wanted to do with Jesus. So, I’m going to blog my purposeful pause to celebrate God with us – Immanuel. I’m calling for a personal, daily Christmas Pause. Would you like to join me?

I’m starting with Todd Agnew’s song – God with Us.  Enjoy.

What do you do with Jesus at Christmas?

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.

  1. Me too Jennifer, I don’t want an ordinary commercial Christmas. I’m going to spend less time shopping, decorating and baking and give up on the idea of making everything perfect. I’m going to spend more time focusing on Christ who is perfect.

  2. Amazing song and clip. That’s what I want: more focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Pray for me as I try to teach my 4 year old granddaughter the true meaning of Christmas that her parents don’t seem to want her to learn. Great blog!
