Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

What’s on the tree?

This month our Christmas tree celebrates its 43rd year of service.  Its decorations have improved greatly from the first year—strings of popcorn, real cookies, and those satin-covered styrofoam balls—to a collection of “treasures” accumulated through the years.  Some are just pretty or fun, but many have special significance:

Hearts symbolizing God’s love shown through Jesus and through friends & family

Bells reminding us of the joyful news of our Savior coming to earth to save us

Angels who announced the King’s birth

Snowflakes and poinsettias, beautiful examples of His creation that we enjoy in the winter time

A dove—the Prince of Peace who will one day reign unrivaled on a new earth

Harps and pianos, the music of praise to our Creator and Redeemer

It’s His birthday!  Let’s celebrate Him!
