One of the best ways to really enjoy the holidays (and any season really) is to take a few minutes everyday to pause and reflect. I call it Selah time. Selah is the Hebrew word found frequently in the book of Psalms . It means to pause and reflect. The psalmist would sing the verses he had written, and then encourage the people to stop and think about what they’d just heard. Then he’d move on to the next few verses.
It’s a vital step in really taking things to your heart and soul.
I believe that true gratitude or “Eucharistic Living” is spent buy taking moments throughout each day to stop, reflect and give thanks.
This book is essentially an exhortation to walk in gratitude. Read it. Your life will be altered.
At the end of this 31 Days series I’ll be posting a 31 day reflection for December. It will take seconds to do each day, but yield results that are immeasurable. I dare you to try 🙂
When it comes to picking your “style” for Holiday decor you may return to the same style over and over, or you may be like me and make changes to your decor each year, or you may change the whole scheme year after year. The key to doing this without breaking the bank is to change the colour scheme. I remember listening to a designer on Cityline years ago, talk about doing this. They said to invest in your “base” decor colour – gold, silver or white. and then to change the colour it essentially would only take one good sized box of a new colour – red, blue, purple, etc.
