Shop 'till you drop! Is that your motto? Did you get up before day light the day after Thanksgiving, and wait in line for store doors to open? Do you have special gifts on your mind and will not give up the search until they are staked out and claimed? Will you delay preparation of your family dinner because you refuse to leave the mall? "Shop 'till you drop" might be your reality!
Whoa! You are missing the serenity of the season! We celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace. The push and shove of shopping leaves no room to experience peace in His presence. Take a deep breath and receive the Holy Spirit's calming touch. "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold (Psalms 46: 10-11 NAS)." Be still! Immanuel! God is with us! (Matthew 1:23) He'll be there to catch you if you drop from exhaustion!!
