Maybe De-Stressing during the Holidays is as Simple as Taking Out the Trash!

As a blogger I’ve seen posts, pins, and emails on downright everything anyone needs to know to prep for the holidays. Awesome bloggers are posting recipes, Christmas devotionals, simple celebration ideas and I’m left thinking, ‘It’s all been said.’

You have enough good ideas, right?

Which draws me to what I read this morning instead…

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Psalm 19:1-3

I took out the trash at frosty 6:30 a.m. and experienced those verses in real time. Glory in the deer tracks scattered across the driveway. Glory in the streak of pink glimmering in the sky and on sheets of ice blanketing the lake. Glory as the brittle air hit my lungs and the silence slipped into my ears.

Isn’t that what we need?

To ditch a few great ideas and instead hear and see His glory revealed in our every days lives by simply walking out the front door? By taking out the trash or grabbing the mail?

May you experience glory this season as you open wide your heart in simple ways — outside in creation.
