Lol. Sadly this is the mindset of too many, but not you Terry.
Perfect post for the day we're supposed to go to confession.
Nan, I think you have hit it just right. Thanks.
Found this today: I will simply become a place for God today. There is no need to produce or perform or perfect - simply become a place for God. Christmas is conceived in my world when I simply receive it - however Christ and His will comes to me. The miscarriage of Christmas begins when anxieties crowd out the space within simply to carry Christ.
