Tips from the Tree Top #12

Hallmark Cards produces warm images of perfect Christmas celebrations. Those ideals exist only in imaginations. Refrain from trying to create the perfect atmosphere for Christmas. Give of yourself this year. Relax. Let others give of themselves as well. See what you can create together. Christmas is about God becoming human - not humans becoming God.


  1. How true- this is the season when the stats tell us most relationship breakdowns occur !!

  2. Yes. We don't deal with conflict in relationships well at all.

  3. This is one of the wisest pieces of advice for Christmas I have ever heard. Experience proves to me this is true and why we can make or break Christmas trying to have a
    "Hallmark Christmas". Thank you for the reminder.

    1. Walter, I'm glad it is helpful to you. We are best when we just give ourselves to the people we are with. A blessed Advent and Christmas to you.
