the Christmas Tree

One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season, is to sit in the living room with all the lights off except for the lights on the Christmas tree. That's where I'm sitting now.

It's so....peaceful. I am just sitting here thinking and praying.

I just love our tree. It is very special to me. I love to just look at the ornaments and think about when we got each one and from whom and for what occasion.

In the spirit of Christmas, I encourage you to take time before you go to bed some night to shut off the lights, the television or whatever keeps your mind preoccupied, and just sit in the presence of the lit Christmas tree.

Pray. Sing. Read. Blog. Relax. Sleep. Journal. Cuddle with a loved one. Think.

Just enjoy the simplistic beauty of the Christmas tree. We have a star ornament on the tree and I love to let my eyes travel to the star and think about the wise men who saw the star in the East and followed it to Jesus.
