--During December reflect on our need for Jesus, why Christ came and the joyful anticipation that He's coming again.
--When you feel anxiety or pressures of Christmas preparation, ask yourself "Where is Christ in this season?" and then say "no" to whatever you can.
--Rest in the season. Make actual space in the calendar to give God room.
--God shows up in different ways. He's unconventional.
--The only way to prepare your heart is to spend time in God's Word. Pray and wrestle with it.
