Echo’s Of The Past
For the last decade, I have been blessed to end my year at the Ryman with Amy Grant and Vince Gill for Christmas. It never gets old. One of my favorite things to do is to walk onto the Ryman stage early in the morning, while it is dark. It is so quiet; you can hear a pin drop or better yet just simply the sound of a coffee cup being set gently on the stage floor. It resonates and echo’s through the hall and reminds me of each year gone by and memories that have been made. I sat on the empty stage this year and listened to the silence and thought back over the year that was 2019.
Blessing In The Chaos
It has been a crazy chaotic year filled with so many blessings. From early in the year, when our fourth daughter arrived a month early, to trips to Belfast, London, and across the United States we have had an eventful year. I can say that it has been one of our best and one of our busiest. Our staff has grown as has our client list and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for each of them. We get to do what we love. No matter how crazy things get, that in itself is a blessing.
If I could leave you with one thing, I have learned this year, it would be that the journey or the process is more important than the goal. The process is ongoing, and the goal is finite. I could write an entire blog on this alone, and I will in early 2020. For now, as you embrace the chaos of Christmas and look back at the year, think about the journey and the process you have been on and enjoy the moments. We all set goals and we reach some of them and some we don’t, but if we enjoy the process along the way the goals will take care of themselves. Don’t make it a goal to get through this season, rather take life as it comes and enjoy the moments for the days are long and the years are short.
So, with that in mind let me say Merry Christmas from all of us at Streamline Event Agency. We hope you make memories that last a lifetime and reflect on Jesus as the reason for the Christmas season. Don’t worry, when you return to work for 2020, we will be here ready to go to make great things happen with you.
Merry Christmas from all of us.
