Hashtag Blessed

Black Friday. The biggest shopping day of the year has arrived. Only to be followed by Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. And let me confess, these days are a blogger's dream. The sales, the excitement, the comfy sweaters. But these days can only mean one thing - the holidays are here. 

I love the holidays. I love the hustle and bustle of parties, get-togethers, dinners and drinks. But every year I try so very hard to not get wrapped up in the stress that comes with the holiday mess. Don't we all. 

Before you embark on your marathon weekend of shopping I would like to remind you of something. No matter what sale you find, or what deal you snag, you are already hashtag blessed. Not because of the items in your shopping cart, but because of all the blessing that came with the birth of our Savior. The fact that you are not only loved, but forgiven, sought after and fought for by someone who wants to be with you so badly that He gave His life to save yours. 

So as the holidays get crazy please don't forget what the craze is really all about. The love that came when the Son was born. 

"Enter His gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name." - Psalm 100:4
