Balancing Christmas And Everything Else

I believe that Christmas Eve is, on average, the busiest day of the year for most worship leaders. This is partly based on what I hear my colleagues say, and partly based on the stats for this website, which take a massive one day nose dive every December 24.

And it’s not just Christmas Eve, either. This whole season can become crazy if we let it.

Laura Blankenship on Christmas, craziness, and how to maintain some balance:

December. The month of crazy. At least that’s how it feels to me. My to-do list is never ending, there’s a party every weekend, and the church duties keep piling up. Not to mention my two little ones who are being bombarded by how our society views Christmas while I desperately try to turn their eyes toward Jesus.

The struggle is real. Come January, I feel a great sense of relief mixed with exhaustion. Every year I tell myself it’s going to be better; it’s going to be easier. And somehow it never is.

But not this year. This year I am taking action. Here are some practical steps I am taking to achieve the balance for which I have been longing.

Laura shares four things to help you find the right balance during the Christmas season. Check out the whole post here.
