Chris and I made a big decision today.
No Christmas tree this year. I mean, no traditional Christmas tree this year.
We’re still waiting for the repair man to come and put in a new back door. (That’s a long story — take a quick peek at my November 18.2015 post for an explanation.) Apparently, Mr. Repairman is coming some time in the next couple of weeks and when he does, he will want to stand right where a beautiful, big, traditional Christmas tree would be standing in our house. So, we know that when he comes, we will need to push and shuffle a decorated Christmas tree all over the living room, to make room for the door installation — and that spells d-i-s-a-s-t-e-r from the get-go.
We got to thinking . . . maybe we don’t need a big tree this year.
Maybe we can have a Christmas plant that we can push and shuffle so much easier than a tree.
So . . . with a few white lights and some finely tuned placement of very special family Christmas ornaments, I came up with this beauty.
You can’t see the star at the top of the “tree” very well in the picture but it’s there.
When I think of Christmas, I think of Jesus. I think of the hope I have in Him alone.
Where would I be without the Christ child?
I took creative licence to express my adoration with our 2015 Christmas plant, all-a-gloried with baubles and hope.
