Today I will share some of my Christmas decorations.
I have only one new one for this year,and that was made for me by my Granddaughter.
This picture and the reason it is special needs no explanation.
Each time I look at the above decoration,I get teary eyed.
OK,I cry,would be more correct.
Below is a picture of a wreath that has hung in my house since 1979.Steve made this in school when he was in grade one.
He thinks it is ugly,but I have to put it out each year.
By now,it just wouldn't feel right if I didn't hang it up.
This little ornament is one of several,with similar designs.
Since I like Cardinals,but don't see them around here,I enjoy this Cardinal.He may not be red,but is still quite charming.
Jesus Is The Reason For The Season
I got this one from Steve,many years ago,and it always has a place near the top of the tree.
It is a reminder to keep Christ in Christmas.
My tree is quite small,but it works in a house that is also not very large.
The tree has lost some of it's appeal this year.
Somehow it is no fun to sit and watch the lights all by myself.
I dare not let myself dwell on the emptiness of the house,especially at Christmas time.
I try to remember that God is in control and knows what is best for me.
I wanted to end with some thought about Christmas,but this one seemed to be the one I needed for today.
Thought for today:
Because God is with us,we need not fear what lies ahead.
