Perfectly Imperfect

This year the tiny Christmas tree I bought a few years ago on a Black Friday special in order to simplify the tree process is now missing the middle section of lights.

I am not even bothered by it.

A few years ago the imperfections may have concerned me. The perceptions of others of my imperfect holiday decorations may have unsettled me.

Not this year.

This year, I am resting in the beauty of imperfections. I don’t have any expectations this Christmas for perfect traditions. I am simply going to enjoy the simple moments.

Nothing was perfect with the birth of our Savior…a dirty stable, no room at the inn…yet everything perfectly unfolded the way God planned.

What have I learned this year?

Trust the process. Be okay with imperfection. Give yourself some grace. Sometimes, life is messy, and that is okay.

Merry Christmas! ♥️♥️

  1. I love that…life is messy and imperfect! I think us mom’s have been taught to try to create a perfect Christmas. I still strive to do that as it’s a habit but I think I will take your advice next year and slow down! I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!🎉🎉🎉❤️
