Take the Pressure Off and Find Peace

Unrealistic and uncommunicated expectations can add pressure and unnecessary stress to our holiday season. 

Identify your own expectations early and make sure they are realistic. Then tentatively communicate expectations EARLY to those who will be impacted, looking for mutually acceptable compromises. Expect imperfection in how your plans play out and roll with it.  Pray proactively for patience and resilience when things do go wrong.  

We live in a fallen world and our peace is in Jesus, not in the “perfect” holiday gathering.
