Message Summary

In our pursuit of the perfect Christmas, it’s easy to be disappointed—even devastated—when things go wrong. Author Julie Lyles Carr encourages us to find beauty in authenticity and imperfection, a concept that is embraced in Japan and expressed by the word wabi-sabi. This Christmas, find grace, laughter, and fond memories in the messiness that happens when real life meets your perfect Christmas plans.
