I’ll admit it – if you ask me about signs of the holiday season, my first thoughts are grumpy. The too-soon decorating. The endless to-do lists and obligations.

Ah, but the signs and wonders… that refocus makes a difference.

  • The cold snap reminding us that the universe contains seasons
  • Delectable food pics in magazines, pushing me out of my day to day
  • The excited faces of our youngest Emersonians…

What’s on your list?

At church we’re going to take our time to breathe into wonders. Set aside those to-do lists and Scrooge nature for a couple of hours. And hey, traffic isn’t bad on a Sunday, as long as you choose a route a few blocks away from the malls.


An easy way to make someone’s season a little brighter- Our Mitten Tree

Make the winter a little warmer for a homeless teen. Bring in new or gently used:

  • Gloves/mittens
  • Hats/Scarves
  • Jackets
  • Sleeping Bags

All donations go to Montrose Grace Place, a Houston-based organization providing twice-weekly dinners plus toiletries, clean clothes, and community resources to homeless youth.
