the tree

There is just this incredible peace I feel sitting in a room lit by just the Christmas tree. I can remember as a kid, my parents would have parties around the holidays at our house. I would frequently take small breaks from the crowds and escape to my room. There on my dresser was a small tree, lighting a corner of the room. I would go and sit and feel "all together" again. As an adult I can still gain that sense of calm just sitting and gazing at the Christmas Tree. Taking a moment to be still and reflecting what I am thankful for, how blessed I am and remembering how humbling it is that I am privileged to call the creator of the universe, Father.


Merry Christmas

Oh that is beautiful. I am working on mine, well actually I gave up for the evening and will finish tomorrow. There is something romantic of a lite Christmas tree with the lights off.

Very inspiring tree. We're putting up one this Saturday. My 3-year old wants something humongous (and that's his exact word!).
