Your first Christmas together with just a few tree ornaments…
Children arrive and with them arrives more ornaments.
Little hands lovingly create more ornaments…
Like reindeer clothespin ornaments and picture ornaments…
And more and more ornaments…
Add to that your own handmade ornaments…
Ornaments from dear family and friends…
The tree b-u-l-g-e-s with precious ornaments!
Now, I LOVE each of those heartfelt ornaments
As children grow and leave the nest, many of those dear homemade ornaments now bedeck their own tree.
My little tree has now grown to full size. Filled with my most cherished ornaments.
Each Christmas I sit quietly by the glow of this tree and gaze on each little angel, cradling a tiny baby, and reflect on what it means that Jesus is:
God is with us
Son of God
Prince of Peace
King of Kings
The Light of the world
