    Instagram has a new feature that allows me to connect with artists in a fun new way.  Plumb is currently out on the road with the 2017 K-LOVE Christmas Tour. Hear stories of how God is giving hope to people at these shows, what it's like to tour with Steven Curtis Chapman & why the Christmas season means so much to her family and marriage.

    You know, I was just thinking about Willie, who called in to ask all of us to remember to treat one another with kindness as we get our families together at Christmas.  He said that the drama and in-fighting in his family just breaks his 80-year old Mom's heart.

    And he makes a great point! Family drama at Christmas time is funny in the movies, but not in real life.

    So, how do we handle that? How do we get together with the cousins, aunts and in-laws that we rarely see and have very little in common with and not end up with drama?

    I read a paraphrase of Colossians 3:13-14 today and it is so good. It says “So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”

    Isn't that good?! Whether it's dealing with Uncle Bob's political views that you disagree with, or with that co-worker that is making you crazy, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Imagine what our family Christmas would be if we all chose to do that!

    One of my favorite things to read on Twitter is an account where he calls himself “Cat Food Breath.” It's hilarious! It's written as though it's the cat speaking and he is always getting into trouble. But, since he's a cat…it's not HIS fault, naturally! He refers to his “humans” as “Thing 1 and Thing 2,” and he's got more than 50, 000 followers!

    He's especially funny at Christmas. Yesterday, he tweeted “It's an amazing coincidence that more ornaments fall off the tree when I am in the room.”

    Right before that he said “Thing Two's coffee just got gravitized. #Festive#Ker-Sploosh”

    He also tweeted: “Thing Two is yelling something about the angel from the top of the tree? It looks like she flew down and crash-landed near the couch. #ChewMarksOnTheWingsAreOnlyCircumstantialEvidence”. I love it!

    But, as funny as it is, pets can certainly do some damage…especially at Christmas time. And, they run the risk of getting injured, too.

    Experts say that there are a few things we can do to keep our pets safe at Christmas. If you've got a young puppy or kitten that might be teething, try to keep them away from Christmas lights, as they might try to chew on them. Watch out for tinsel and ribbons as well…pets might think they look tasty.

    Finally, seasonal plants like poinsettias, holly berries and mistletoe can potentially be toxic to pets, so be sure to place them where they can't get to them.

    No advice, however, on what to do it your cat turns the Christmas tree into his own personal climbing apparatus or plays soccer with all the ornaments!

    Just like Cat Food Breath likes to say, “I really think Santa likes it better when the tree ornaments are under the couch. #Festive#CreativePlacement#DustBunniesNeedDecorationsToo
