David danced before the LORD with all his might; II Samuel 6:14
One of my favorite television shows to watch is “Dancing With the Stars”. I love seeing the contestants start of with minimal skill then as the weeks go by they transform into skilled dancers with precision, poise, gracefulness, and moves that I could not even dream of being able to perform…
This show reminds me much of life. We start out clumsy and easily frustrated but as we face greater challenges we begin to handle them with more poise and tolerance.
Does it happen over night? No!
Will we miss steps? Yes!
Will those we must dance with irritate us? Absolutely!
But…it is so important we remember…whether we are tired, sore, frustrated, challenged, or even tempted to quit we must …
JUST KEEP DANCING

Too much to do and not enough time to do it? Paul has no Peter to borrow from? People not working with ya? Life coming at you too fast? What to do when life gets overwhelming?
Keep on Keeping on!!!
Albert Einstein’s three rules of work which are especially true during the holidays…
1. Out of clutter, find simplicity
Place your cards next to your favorite chair so you can work on them while relaxing
Compose a Newsletter highlight favorite events and milestones over the previous year. Insert into the Card
Use address labels generated electronically
Purchase standard size envelopes to avoid paying extra postage
Use gift bags when possible.
Purchase ribbon with wire in it for easier bows
For easy gift labels use address labels
Invite family members to bring their favorite dishes
Keep the menu simple
Quality verses Quantity is a good practice
Use no more than 5 ingredients (There are cookbooks to help with this)
Focus on high traffic areas
Place clutter in a storage tub to clear hard surfaces
Ensure bathrooms are clean
Clean up spills and soiled areas when they occur
2. From discord, find harmony
Give the Gift of Forgiveness Practice kindness
Pray for those who are difficult to deal with
Make every effort to practice tolerance
Put others first
Include everyone no matter the circumstances…you will never get this day in time again.
3. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
Practice the KISS method (Keep It Simple Silly)
Think of different methods to accomplish your goals
Maximize on your gifts and talents
Captitalize on your passions
Ask for help
Most importantly, whether you are dealing with clutter, discord, or difficulties you can apply one action to all…Commit it to God!
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him to help you do it and He will. Psalms 37:5 TLB
You Can Do This…
Just Keep On Keeping On!!! Love Lee ♥
