christmas in july

For my writers group, we are working on an advent book of devotionals. It is hot outside. I sweated through my tshirt before 10 am. I went swimming and added at least a dozen new freckles to the bunch. Back to school supplies line the grocery store aisles, while I sit at my computer and try to think about Christmas.
It is kind of nice actually. Freeing. No presents to buy or cards to address or parties to attend or family commitments. Just Christ’s birth, which is of course everything.

I haven't gotten to the point of writing yet because I'm having trouble thinking about Christmas in July. Yet, EVERY day I should be thinking about Christ's birth and the importance of it in my life. Knowing that you are working on this helps motivate me. Thanks!!!
