It is December, and nobody asked if I was ready. (Sarah Kay, American poet)

We say that time flies, and when we reach December, we wonder how it arrived so quickly. And yet, we knew all along that it was coming—like every other month on the calendar. Or every day and week, for that matter. We should prepare ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually for every day, no matter the time of year, so we are ready to live and serve well.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
