Feeling hurried, frantic, or overwhelmed today? I have just the thing.
Take a deep breath and open your hands. I'm praying for you right now.
Just let that stress go.
You are right where you are supposed to be.
You are released from the need to be perfect, to have the perfect Christmas, to find the perfect gifts, and to make everyone happy in the process.
Because everyone's happiness is not your job.
Your job is to let God's spirit of peace and love fill you, and to remember that the true beauty of Christmas is found in the simplicity - the mystery - of His grace.
Take 6.5 minutes of your day, and turn your speakers up. Savor one of the most transcendent pieces of music ever written, O Magnum Mysterium, by Morten Lauridsen.

What is your favorite Christmas music? What brings your attention back to a starry night, so long ago, and the baby who came to change the world? I hope you'll share.
