am i dreaming?
is the weekend already over?
really?

this is one of those “hard to wrap my brain around” mornings.
you know the ones…
where you look back over the last few days… think… wonder… where it all went.

the last day of november is HERE!
i’ll admit…
i get a feeling in my belly at this time…
and no it’s not all mashed potatoes and gravy i ate…
it’s a “we’re just about to take that big dip on the roller coaster” kind of feeling.
it’s excitement…
it’s anticipation…
it’s “oh my word there is so much to do”!

today…
i am going to reaffirm…
remind myself…
let it soak in…
and soak in GOOD…
that all the “rush”… “scramble”… “hustle”…
is NOT what it’s about!

sure…
i am certain i will find myself rushing about at some point this month…
well… i am sure of it… i think that’s normal… part of it… there IS a lot to do.

but…
as i rush about…
as i get swept up in all the cheer…
i want to remember…
i want to remind myself…
to BE present.

sure HE wants us to enjoy… HE wants us to have fun… HE wants us to give…
AND… HE wants us to remember the REASON for it ALL.

so today…
on this last day of november…
let’s let it SOAK IN…
settle DEEP within us…
so that…
when we’re in those long lines waiting…
when we’re rushing about…
when we’re swept up in it all…
we can reach within ourselves… grab a hold… reflect…
and allow HIS light to SHINE!
when the light shines upon HIM we can see the REASON for the season…
the WHY for it all.
