Moments with the minister: Peace on Earth

I love winter and I especially love Christmas, but I never seem to be ready for it. I’m never ready for it financially, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. It’s draining on the pocket book because I have 4 little girls. It’s draining physically and emotionally because in a one month period I spend more time than I do all year with my parents and my in‐laws (I’m praying they don’t read this). Spiritually, I often find, that between the busyness of my personal life and the church picking up speed during the holidays that I’m left wondering if I have done all I can do to prepare my heart for Christmas.
