I am a “To Do” list-making lunatic. I’m not kidding. I’ve been known to make lists of the lists that I’ve wanted to write up. While my list-making “skill set” proved valuable to my family when we moved last year, it has been equally unhelpful in distracting me from the real meaning of Christmas. If not on guard, I can checklist the holidays like it’s a race to “get through” Or, I can intentionally celebrate Christmas as God intended. So with an honest heart, I drafted an entirely new list, the “To Don’t List”.
* Fret over the Christmas letter, family picture and change of address cards. This year I made a joint Christmas greeting/change of address postcard.

What’s one thing on your “To Don’t List?”
