While driving home one night recently, I saw a brightly lit house from the road, and as I got closer, sure enough...it was Christmas lights. This wasn't a big project that someone was getting a start on either. This was a fully completed Christmas light display. In October. It's not even Halloween yet!!

What is this need we have to rush the seasons?? We see back-to-school clothes out in June, Halloween stuff by August, Christmas soon after...we're so busy looking ahead that we are missing what's going on right now!

Savor the season at hand...time moves too fast as it is!

When do you start putting up your holiday decorations?
