Christmas Tree Love










What is it about Christmas trees that make an ordinary Thursday evening in December so magical? I love sitting in a cozy room, lit only by the glistening lights of our tree, while the world goes on outside around me. I make an effort to spend some time each day doing just that, without a phone or laptop competing for my attention. It is therapy for my soul. It is a link to generations past, to people who did the same thing, not because they chose to, but because their world was yet to be filled with the wonderful but distracting advances in technology. I plan to do more relaxing in front of our tree this weekend. Along with some wrapping and organizing, of course!

Have a lovely weekend, my friends!
Whatever your plans may be!

  6. What a pretty tree! It looks so nice in the corner of your living room. I love the bits of RED on it, and the ornament "Oh come let us adore Him" is very special, indeed. Enjoy your quiet time just gazing at your tree, and appreciating this special season. : )
