Messy Families, Perfect Love

Christmas is synonymous with many wonderful things, but often it also gifts us with awful things like extra stress. As we search our heart we find that most of these are self inflicted like the stress of finding the perfect gift, the stress of baking the best Christmas sweets, the stress of designing the most festive meaningful holiday experience for your children, the stress of attending the multitude of the seasonsā€™ parties and events. Then there is the specialty stress, the one that Satan thrives on this time of the year - the stress of families. As you read those words Iā€™m sure there is a twinge in your heart of what's to come next week, a brief negative thought that enters your mind and grows from a mild stress to Santa-sized sack full of irritation, resentment, anger, and bitterness.
