The question is What kind of word will Lisa-Jo Baker come up with and how will it work for my topic.... I have no control over that. And the thought of making it work kind of gives me a thrill.
#fiveminutefriday meet 31days of Christmas preparation. The word this week:
Not everyone likes to plan ahead. Not everyone is wired to plan ahead. Some people like the last minute rush. And they do it so well.
I don't. When I rush, I look like I'm running a three legged race -- without a partner. At least on the inside. I manage how it all looks on the outside pretty well.
The last minute holiday race does not bring the best out in me. That is why I am trying to be intentional with my planning.
As I've begun to pull apart all the little parts of getting preparations, it's no wonder it feels like a race to get it all done when I wait to get started.
This year, my hope is to change the race - to a pace - of rest and hope and peace.
