IMG_1075It is one of the busiest seasons of the year. The list for Santa Claus can be miles long, as well as the lines at the toy store.

There are parties to plan and activities to attend.

Yet it is a time that is supposed to be quiet and reflective. As Christians we await the birth of Jesus. We need to stop and breathe, drink in the beauty that surrounds us.

Poinsettias have been described as being in the shape of the Star of Bethlehem. Looking at the various flowers can help us find focus on the important things during this Christmas season.

Do you have a favorite symbol that keeps you focused during this time?
