"Can I give you permission to be messy and merciful this holiday season? Because, the most beautiful truth is this: your mess doesn't change the miracle. Your stress doesn't stop Him from coming. Your lack doesn't deplete His whole. And your rushing won't erase His peace.
So, live this holiday in freedom. Survive in it, or thrive in it. Don't try to be who you aren't, or feel what you don't. Because Jesus and mercy are here. Inside of you. And that, my friends, is a beautiful Advent. Amen?"
