12 Days to a LESS Stressed Christmas – Day Eleven

Girls Holding Plate of Mince PiesJoy-filled Sharing – you have to have “joy” to spread it around! If you have applied some of the previous days’ suggestions, along with doing what you know works for you, your stress should be decreasing and your joy increasing. Why not share some of that joy with an unexpected recipient.  You could pack up a few little gifts that anyone would appreciate, or some cash give to someone that tugs on your heart strings.  Perhaps the Lord has already placed someone on your heart, or it might be someone you see every day.  You could also go to a place where you can “people watch” being on the look-out for someone that could use some joy. Taking the time to share an encouraging word to a harried mom is sure to bring a smile to her face, and bounce in her step!  You could also be on the “look out” for someone that could use a helping hand to load something into their car, or let them have that parking space that just became available.  Give joy away – and it increases! The “joy” of the Lord is my strength.  Nehemiah 8:10
