Deck the Halls

Christmas TreeIt’s halfway through December, and it’s official…this girl is in the Christmas spirit! This week at school – as most of my classes are working on finishing projects – we listened to a lot of Christmas music. There’s really nothing better to brighten your day! We have all our Christmas decorations up at home – the stockings are hung, star is atop the lighted tree, and wrapped gifts sit under the tree.

Last year I worked really hard at making a lot of our decorations including our stocking and tree skirt. This year it was so nice to get them out of a box! Our tree is adorned with many sentimental ornaments that we each received growing up. I love to sit in the living room and stare at the tree and all the memories that it holds within those ornaments.


Most of all – when I look at our lighted tree, I am reminded of the light that Christ was in the world and the light that I should be.

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
