Preparing Our Heart and Home for the Holidays – Lets Get it Done Together
Thank you for joining this months series, “Preparing Our Heart and Home for the Holidays.” To prepare in advance for the an enjoyable holiday, join me each morning (Monday-Friday) as we cover at least one task that we want to accomplish. Start any time and share your progress in the comments!
Is it really the day before Thanksgiving? Do you have quite a bit of things to do today? You might be thinking,”I have this to do and that to do. And really that is not getting done.” Well I hope you’re not too frazzled the day before Thanksgiving. But if you are feeling a little rushed, don’t worry friends, lets do this together, are you ready?

Write down today’s verse and place it in your kitchen on the refrigerator, above the sink or oven range.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song. Psalm 28:7
- Continue lighting a candle and praying for your family.
- Continue playing your favorite music.
- Review your to do list, it’s probably a tad longer today. But after you write it out, write a number next to each item with order of priority. Start with your highest list item first and work your way down.
- Next, find at least one person to help you accomplish at least one task. Something you can delegate. Remember, you do not need to do it all. Friends and family (typically) love to help!
- If you are cooking today, get a family member or friend with you in the kitchen with you. Take at least one picture of you cooking together. Make sure you capture the mess you make! I’ll be sharing some of mine today over on Facebook!
If you are not hosting:
- Call your host and see if there is anything you can do to help them today.
- Make your side dish or beverage item.
Lets get going friends! Ready – set – GO! Have a fabulous day!
