happy, busy, beautiful holidays.

 It sweeps shut.  The Christmas lights twinkle, seemingly flicker in a nanosecond.  I blink, lashes flutter, move slowly... I breathe deeply.  I relish the laughter and business, but try to live fully through this winter season.  I hold my breath, look around, close my eyes, whisper a prayer of thanks.  The beauty of winter shines through when I'm still, I notice.

"Be still and know that I am God.'' I try to.  I yearn  to. In the midst and rush of school, piano practice, acrobatics, tennis, visitors, chores, cleaning, cooking, caring -- I stop.  Breathe.  Relish.  It's not going to be like this forever.

  I can at least try to make the best of it, right?

 A few things that help me slow down? //

writing and reading
Photography... it soothes the creative balms that splurge within me; so, in the midst of school and the holiday bustle, I take out my camera and start snapping. 

So, here's to Christmas trees, Jesus's birth, beautiful lights, snow, and making time to slow down. 

what do you like to do during Christmas?
