Weekend reading: December 6, 2014

When all else fails, just go for joy!

It’s been a whirlwind week as we celebrated Thanksgiving, enjoyed 6 awesome days with my sister and her boyfriend (including not one, but two double dates!), and welcomed family from all over the country to my mom’s house to celebrate my grandmother’s 80th birthday.

We’re heading home tomorrow, but I’m not sure there’s any hope of regaining normalcy at this point, as our calendar is very quickly filling up with all of the things I love about Christmas. I wouldn’t have it any other way, but I am definitely going to need to carve out some quiet time for myself at some point!

What I’m thinking about:

In all honesty, my personal Facebook feed has been full of posts about Ferguson and Eric Garner and privilege and racism for the past two weeks. But I think I’ve contributed to the “noise” of the internet enough, so I want to wait to share some of those links with you until I can finish wrapping them in coherent thoughts to (hopefully) share my heart as well.

Since Christmas season is in full swing (and this one is shaping up to be more chaotic and busy than our normal Christmas celebrations), I thought some helpful links about taking control of Christmas would be appropriate instead!
