Day 1: Go

On your mark...Get set...GO!

...GO to find that perfect gift
...GO to make the house perfect
...GO to spend time with family
...GO to get the best deal
...GO to make the holiday season perfect

What makes a season perfect? The best decorations? Most expensive gift? The creative Christmas card? The best decorated cookie? The most original traditions?

What do we sacrifice when all we do is GO?

This year, I want things to be different. I want to feel like we GO with purpose, not obligation.

I don't want things to get left behind or forgotten. Last year, we simply ran out of time to do things, and one the first thing to get dropped was our nightly advent readings. This year will be different! We will spend that time as a family and GO on a spiritual journey to discover the real reason for the season. We will teach our children to GO forth in Christ. We will learn to GO in all that we do with love. We will GrOw in all that we do this season.

On your mark...get set...GO!
