Much like planning a wedding, Christmas is often easily lost in the hustle and bustle of the details. Making the lists, rushing in and out of stores, buying the pile of gifts, wrapping said pile of gifts, attending parties, scheduling visits with loved ones, and on and on. But despite all the festivities we are most affected by the memories of time spent sharing our lives together. So as you celebrate Christmas today, and as you prepare for your wedding day, have fun with the details, but don't let them swallow up the bigger picture. Cherish the little moments along with the big ones. Be sure to accept all those hugs with appreciation and grace. Forget about the little mishaps and enjoy what goes right. And whether it's Christmas or your upcoming wedding, remember to celebrate the Story that has lead you to this place.
