Bah Humbug to Stress!

As Ewe approach the holiday season, it can become increasing more difficult for a sheep to maintain its proper focus. Following, is a potential  list of "Stressful" situations to avoid. First, there's the stress of "Over-eating". So many treats, so little time, what is a sheep to do?  Are Ewe going to have to join "Weight Watchers" again?

 Another stress Ewe are likely to encounter are "Unexpected Guests". It seems almost inevitable that someone will appear at ewe-r doorstep. Ewe always do have the option of not answering the bell! 
If ewe don't open; "I'll Huff & I'll Puff & I'll Blow the Door Down"!
 The third stress to avoid is "Traffic"! It seems that wherever Ewe go, there are several cars following. Besides that, once Ewe reach Ewer destination, Ewe also have a parking spot to find! 

Give me some space! We all need to find a parking spot!

 The next stress Ewe have to avoid, are the "Long Lines"!  Ewe are in such a hurry to get everything done, & find ewer-self  waiting in line to buy ewe-r gifts. It reminds Ewe of when Ewe first took ewe-r family to Disney World. That memory can drive Ewe to the edge!

When do Ewe think we'll actually get into the store? I'm getting cold!
The last stress to avoid, for today, are the "Neighbor's Loud Parties" during the holidays. How are the little lambs going to get to sleep, with the neighbors loudly hooting & howling next door? Ewe could speak with them, but it may lead to a dangerous confrontation.
"It's Ewe, Baby,It's Ewe, Baby,"  that I'm Dreaming about!
It seems that juggling all these "stresses" would be too much for a sheep to handle on its own. It would be similar to an elephant trying to walk on a tightrope! Just how ridiculous would that be?

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"
 The holiday season will bring its added stress to Ewe, too! The best solution for that stress, is praying for His peace. Look to the Good Shepherd, the Prince of Peace, to diffuse the stress for Ewe!

"You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You." Is. 26:3
