- Heart Check– Do a self examination of your heart. Ask yourself the intentional questions. What is the state of my heart? Does it feel close to God? Far away? Am I too distracted to even know?
- Journal– Get a journal and at the top write these questions to answer: What does it look like in my life for God to come closer to me? What does it look like for me to come closer to Him.
- Go on a creative adventure– Either alone, with friends, or family. Go out one night and look at the stars or the sky and then try to put yourself in the place of one of the characters from the Birth of Jesus Narrative. (Luke 2:1-20) This is great to do with kids. Look at the stars and talk about that night explaining that this is what the shepherds would have been seeing. What do you think it would be like to hear the angels singing in the quiet of the night?
- Plan a Birthday Party for Jesus – whether it is a birthday cake, singing happy birthday, or lighting a candle. Do something to celebrate Jesus and come closer to him. Maybe while you are at Christmas mass pray for one burden that you are carrying to give to Him. Something that you are carrying that is weighing you down and imagine yourself placing it on the altar at mass and handing it over to Jesus. Then you have open arms to allow Him to come closer.
