What is this compulsion to buy? Why? Ummmm... if you look around there are signs that indicate that there is some vague "holiday" coming up that requires going into debt during repeated frenetic shopping frenzies.
Whatever that "holiday" is, I want nothing to do with it.
I think I will stick with our plain and simple Christmas where the primary focus is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ - the One Who thinks I am precious.
How precious? He paid a very dear price for me - His life. Not so I could buy a lot of stuff for an unknown holiday, but so I could share His love with every gift I give for Christmas.
By the way, He thinks you are that precious, too!
