TURNING OFF THE CHRISTMAS MACHINE

(or how to survive the holidays)

 

 

by

 

 

Linda Shenton Matchett

 

 

 

The retail industry unveils Christmas earlier each year. This year, some stores didn’t even wait until after Halloween to trot out their displays. In addition to the barrage of advertisements everywhere I look (including my smart phone – ugh!), I sometimes find myself too busy to enjoy the holiday or feel worshipful during the Christmas Eve service. The grind of getting year-end tasks done at work and meeting writing deadlines is overwhelming.

 

 

It can snuff the joy of the season right out of a person.

 

 

Here are a few ways I have found to recapture the sense of wonder and awe of God’s gift of His Son’s birth:

 

 

  1. Listen to music. Make an appointment with yourself and God (outside your regular devotional time) and go to a favorite location where you can be alone. If it’s in the house be sure to shut the door and hang a “do not disturb” sign on the knob. Using the music producing device of your choice (iPod, CD, YouTube, etc.), listen to Christmas carols. Lots of Christmas carols. Listen at a sound level that tunes out everything else. Sing along (no matter your vocal ability) and pay attention to the words. Let God remind you of the “reason for the season.”
  2. Take a walk. Yes, I know it’s winter, and here in New England it’s downright frigid. Bundle up and tuck hand-warmers in your gloves. Promise yourself a cup of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee upon return. As you walk, look at God’s creation. With the leaves gone, it’s easier to notice the variations in tree bark, size and shape of shrubs, and the nuances of color in soil and stones. Talk to God and thank Him for His attention to detail in everything He made. Be specific. Remember, He could have created one type of everything, and we wouldn’t have known the difference. Instead, He gave us variety beyond belief.
  3. Go to church. Not on Sunday or a day it’s full of people, but when the building is vacant. Let yourself into the sanctuary. Remove your coat and sit down in one of the pews. Take a deep breath. Then another. Is there a cross in the room? Gaze at it and remember that before Christ died for us, He came into the world as a tiny baby. Then list the reasons you are thankful at this particular time of year. Speak them out loud. You may feel foolish at first, but once you get going, you’ll discover they readily roll off your tongue.

 

 

It’s my prayer that you’ll be able to turn off the Christmas machine this year, and regain the joy of the season.

 

 

 

 

 

“…Behold I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 2:10-11 (NASB)

 

 

 

Blurb for A Doctor in the House (Part of The Hope of Christmas collection):

Emma O’Sullivan is one of the first female doctors to enlist after President Franklin Roosevelt signs the order allowing women in the Army and Navy medical corps. Within weeks, Emma is assigned to England to set up a convalescent hospital, and she leaves behind everything that is familiar. When the handsome widower of the requisitioned property claims she’s incompetent and tries to get her transferred, she must prove to her superiors she’s more than capable. But she’s soon drawn to the good-looking, grieving owner. Will she have to choose between her job and her heart?

Archibald “Archie” Heron is the last survivor of the Heron dynasty, his two older brothers having been lost at Dunkirk and Trondheim and his parents in the Blitz. After his wife is killed in a bombing raid while visiting Brighton, he begins to feel like a modern-day Job. To add insult to injury, the British government requisitions his country estate, Heron Hall, for the U.S. Army to use as a hospital. The last straw is when the hospital administrator turns out to be a fiery, ginger-haired American woman. She’s got to go. Or does she?
