Tis' the season...

I'm feeling guilty about many many things. Firstly, I've not been eating enough vegetables. Secondly, I've not been able to prepare my healthy juice every morning. Thirdly, I've not been doing my daily exercise. Fourthly, I've been sleeping late (about 2am!). On top of that, I've been attending too many night function which means late and heavy dinner. And....guess what?? I've added 3kg of extra weight in my weighing machine! Yeah... I thought the machine is faulty!!
Can I blame all these to the holiday season? Yeah... tis the season to be jolly, tis the season to eat and eat more, tis the season to give and give more, tis the season to forgive and forget...
BUT tis the season to also think, to reflect, to ponder and to look back...have I done what I'm called to do. Have I done enough for my Lord? Indeed, Jesus is the reason for the season. But somehow, we tend to overdo the unnecessary. We tend to focus on the things that did not matter at all. We tend to think of what other people think rather than think what Jesus would think. In fact my family and I had just visited a family friend for an Advent gathering. We were so inspired to see how nice they decorated their house with so many beautiful Christmas decor that moved us to also want to decorate our house in the same way. As I listed down what are the things needed to buy so that we could further enhance the beauty of our already decorated home, I suddenly realized that we've gone astray! What are we doing? Are we preparing to show the world what we have materially or are we preparing ourselves spiritually for what we have for only Jesus to see?
