|The snowmen on the left have found themselves all over the house each Christmas. They were hand painted by my dear friend, BB.|
Christmas has been quiet this year and I must admit, I almost let myself get way too depressed. However, friends and family (and many of YOU) helped cheer me up.
Very soon the season of Advent will be behind us and I have been embracing the Beauty all around. Yes, it was well worth the time and effort and energy to do a little "spiritual warfare through decorating". :)
I will miss waking up each morning and turning on the lights of the tree.
Everything gets a little touch of red at this time of year. Okay... all other eleven months, too, but at Christmas I have an excuse for the excessive use of the color red.
Christmas gives one an excuse to live in a fairy tale for a few weeks. No matter what is going on in our world at the moment, we... who hold the Christ of Christmas in our hearts... know we all eventually live Happily Ever After.
