31 Thoughts for a Happy Holiday Season

Look up

Where we focus our vision has a way of putting things into perspective for us.  So remember to look up.  Sometimes we can get so caught up in the details of the day-to-day that we miss the bigger picture.  If we can keep the bigger picture in mind, then the day-to-day shrinks in its looming-ness.  When it comes to parenting, looking up is not just about keeping a broader perspective on things—it’s also about seeking help from our God.  No one can do this by himself or herself.  (It’s simple foolishness to try.)
