The house is all decorated and our hearts are filled with the wonder of Christmas. One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is cozy up next to my hubby and kiddos in our living room. The glow of our Christ Tree illuminates the room and draws our conversation to Him. You see, our Christ Tree, is Christ centered. No evidence or tainting of anything but Him and his gifts to us. The tree is decorated with Christian symbols, treasured family photos, illustrations of favorite Bible stories, and scripture. As we gaze upon its radiance, we discuss its symbolic reminders. Its triangular shape reminds us of The Trinity- the totality and equality of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Its green branches remind us of how God's love flourishes. Its branches tell of how we are all branches in one body of believers. The star points to Him as it did on that blessed night thousands of years ago. Each ornament holds a memory or truth about his great love for us. And finally, the lights. The glow speaks to the good and perfect gift we have in Christ Jesus. He is the Light of the World, a great light that overpowered the darkness of death and gave a great hope. This hope is ours. I pray it is also yours.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! We pray that you have the hope, love, and joy of Christ this Christmas and always.
