Christmas is a time when many people want everything to be perfect. The perfect tree. The perfect presents. The perfect traditions. And, of course, the perfect family gathering.
The only problem with wanting everything to be perfect on Christmas is nothing is ever perfect. So, this Christmas, I want to invite you to set aside your quest for perfection. Instead, concentrate on celebrating the birth of Jesus. Rather than searching for perfect moments, find your hope, peace and joy in Christ. Then, you will discover the true meaning of A Perfect Christmas.
