Hustle, Bustle & Mistletoe

Ho ho ho! Greetings and Merry Christmas from Greene Acres in the midst of all the tangled up Christmas tree lights and the mistletoe. 🎄🎁

I hope you are spending this season with family and friends.

Wishing you happiness and joy, but most of all—LOVE.

HIS love. 💜

I have tried so many times to write these days, but truth is, I haven’t felt much like it. Exhaustion has a way of taking front and center.

We all need the reminder to….

Look UP☝🏼

Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Me at our work Christmas party. Yeah it’s an ugly Christmas sweater contest. 🙊🙈

Remember to rest in between the Jingle bells.

The peppermint candy….and work.

Maybe this year you will finally get that hippopotamus you’ve been wanting all these years!

Because only a hippopotamus will do. 😉😂 😂🦛

With all silliness aside though, here’s a song about the real reason for the season I LOVE so much!!!

Heart and Soul of Christmas/Ryan Stevenson

Don’t lose your focus.

Hearts galore in a store I was shopping! I looked up and there they were! (I love you bunches, too, Jesus😄)

Don’t get too busy for the Christ child…to give Him your presents. (presence) He is so deserving.

I was reminded again of the little things we so easily forget to wrap and give to our Lord.

Those “little things” He so deeply desires from us.

  • Our time
  • Our praise
  • Our adoration
  • Our sensitivity to His Voice and caring about what our fellow brother or sister is going through.

Our Savior isn’t asking for much. He doesn’t care if it’s the smallest gift under the tree.

He just wants our heart more than anything.

And He wants to give you HIS heart in return.

I know it’s hard. The world isn’t like it used to be. But God hasn’t left you, my friend. He’s right there inside your heart.

Merry Christmas!!!!🎄🎁 👼✝️


  1. As always you share something unique with each post, and each is wrapped with your love for Jesus. The song was something different, and the lyrics and melody were refreshing. Renee, may you and your family experience the spirit of Christmas hope, peace, joy, and love in the coming year. Blessings.

  2. Hi Renee. I know that I have been following your Heart Tokens blog for a long time. But your posts stopped showing up in my WordPress reader. I came here to your blog and it shows that I am following you, but something isn’t working right. I tried unfollowing and then refollowing just now, to see if that would fix it, but it looks like your blog isn’t listed anymore among the ones that I follow.

    Hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon. Meanwhile, I hope you had a great Christmas. I like your funny sweater dress lol.

    • Thanks, Linda. I had fun hand sewing the stuff onto a plain sweater dress. 🙂

      The thing with the notifications is continually happening with me also, Linda. It must be a glitch, as you said. The top bloggers I follow a lot of times do not show in my notifications. And some have been totally unfollowed somehow! One person thought I had done it on purpose. I tried to explain I had not done it. That hurt my heart, but nothing I can do about it.
