See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. - Ephesians 5:15-16
"The last week of each year tends to become the lost week.
Have you noticed? Once we turn the corner of Christmas, everything blurs. From December 26 to January 2 we slip into a state of "hyper-holiday suspended animation." As far as truly fruitful living is concerned, we might as well have spent the week on Mars.
I've prepared a list of suggested activities to allow you to keep enjoying the spirit of the holidays, while still making solid use of those transitional days.
Lord willing, these suggestions will help keep the blur out and the focus in! This week--call it 'Countdown Week' as we approach the New Year--you might give a day or a part of one to any or all of the following."
