Christmas Countdown Day 18 Connect to Nature

In Florida we are blessed to have the sunshine and warmer weather all year round.  Yes it is true we get acclimated to the warm weather so when the temperature gets to 60 degrees we will be running to get our Florida winter gear while our counterparts up North are wondering why we are so cold when it is a balmy 9 degrees and snowing in places like Michigan and Chicago.

But today it is not about the weather, it is about getting out and about no matter where you are  even for a few minutes in those cold spots. If you are in a cold climate, bundle yourself up and sit on your lawn chair.  It is very easy to stay inside and say that it is cold and you have too many things to do to get caught up before Christmas, but fight for your peace.  Sit quietly outside and watch the snow fall, the rain fall, the sunrise or the sunset, whatever you enjoy.  Close your eyes and for a minute think about all the blessings that you have been blessed with this year.  If you are a person that prays, take a moment and thank God for those blessings and then think about how you can bless someone this Christmas with a gift of comfort, food, donation or just a simple I am thinking about you. This will bring you inner peace to help you get through the rest of the holidays but most important give you encouragement to work this time in to your daily routine throughout the year.
