Isn’t it funny how we have a difficult time peeling off the labels? This is the first time in 4 or 5 years I’ve had my Christmas tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. Honestly, most years I feel like the Grinch. My heart is hard at Christmas, and this usually comes from my own personal mindset that I’m working to overcome with Godly Affirmations (Romans 12:1-2).
This tree is not just greenery, but it represents the gigantic leap I’m taking to unlabel myself as “The Grinch” and affirm my identity in Christ this season and feel God’s peace and joy during this holiday.
