In the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the season I keep forgetting.
I keep forgetting that it’s not about being busy but being blessed.
I keep forgetting that it’s not about pleasing but being loved.
I keep forgetting that it’s not about who I am but whose I am that matters most.
Then God taps me on the heart and seems to whisper, “You don’t have to try so hard. Rest. Remember. Enjoy what you’ve already given and received.”
I slow, smile. Yes, that’s right. This is what Christmas is all about.
And the beautiful love that compelled Him to come all the way here for me, for you.
It’s about the little things too.
And what’s smaller than a baby in a manger?
One gift I can offer back this season is simply to remember what’s already true.
I am loved.
In Him, I am enough.
Because of His grace, I am blessed beyond measure.
This is God’s heart for us this Christmas season–and always.
Are any of you ever forgetful of God’s heart for you like I am? Or maybe someone you love needs to hear a little truth again? I created the prints and candles above with my dear friend Dee from Red Letter Words to help all of us remember.
AND for every print or candle you order on DaySpring.com this week, you will get your choice of 1) a free copy of my book God’s Heart for You 2) a free God’s Heart for You DayBrightener (a 365 day flip calendar 3) a free Heart to Heart with Holley card pack.
Here’s how it works: Just choose the candles and prints you want, then for each one also choose which of the three items listed above you’d like to receive for free. When you check out, enter the code HolleyGifts and you’ll be all set.
Isn’t that so fun? I just love those DaySpring folks and the way they love on us!
