25 Days of Advent - Ponder

PONDER by Carlee Squires

Our Christmas tree is shedding and our floor is covered in pine needles. They fall off if you breathe the wrong way. I was tired of sweeping them up so one night after the kids went to bed I sat on the floor and, just for fun, formed the pile of pine needles into the shape of a heart. Coincidentally my word to reflect on this week was “ponder” and so I did. I carefully considered what that means surrounding Christmas. And I came to the conclusion that in the hustle and bustle of Christmas, it’s difficult to have time to ponder the true meaning because of how busy life gets. It’s not our instinct to re-form an annoyance (pine needles) into something good (a heart). What would happen if we all took time to ponder and reform our thoughts? I think we’d all be a lot more calm, hopeful, and positive.
