Oh Christmas Tree

100_4628 (2)

Our tree this year. Each year, over the course of our married life, we have added a new ornament to the tree. A yearly mission, we made a day to spend the time to choose just the right one and add it to the family of ornaments that have been collected over the years. Some of the ornaments are sweet little raggedy paper things made by the kids in school. Some were made by my hands and the hands of others… crocheted snowflakes, quilted Styrofoam balls. The tree is now filled with 36 years of ornament… some of them belonging to us, the parents and some to the child who still remains at home. Over the years, each of our 4 children was given an ornament – which they chose - and upon leaving home their own little box of memories went with them………Each ornament a moment in time in our lives.

Bible verse for the season:
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
