ON THE 1ST DAY OF CHRISTMAS…
We are reminded of the Tree that adorns most of our homes this season. It is no happen chance that it is an evergreen tree. It was first chosen because the tall stately tree remains green all year reminding us of the FIRST gift of the Savior…everlasting life. That like the needles of the tree if we keep our eyes up and look to the Lord in all things our focus will remain on the important things of time on earth.
Have you ever wondered why Santa waits ‘til we are all asleep to come into our homes…? Even he doesn’t want to distract us from this symbol of Heavenly things.
Thanks for your 1st Day of Christmas. I loved your story about the Christmas tree. Maybe that explains our passion to put up a "real" one. We consider buying an artificial tree, and that has merit, but I'm thinking we will, likely, never buy one. I saw quite a small and charming tree at the lot where we always shop, and thought to myself, "no, I love a fresh tree".....Merry Christmas, everyone.....xo
