Are you like I am allowing just a little bit of Christmas to remain throughout the year? Like most people, I love decorating for Christmas, and it seems that I get started earlier and earlier every year.
This year was especially nice because I finally purchased a flocked Christmas tree that I wanted for so long. I just knew it would be welcomed among the older generation of decorations. I wasn’t disappointed. It shined in the center of attention.
To enhance the scene, I topped my bookcases with lit evergreen boughs that created a lovely ambiance to the room. Everything blended beautifully together. When the room was dark with only the lights on, I could imagine the stars in the sky on the night Jesus was born.
When the holidays ended as they always do and the decorations packed away, I pretended not to notice the lit swag high on the bookcase and allowed it to remain behind. After all, I argued, wouldn’t it make a lovely night light to welcome us back home after an evening out? Without a doubt the answer was yes.
Do you have a little Christmas remaining in your home? An angel? A tablecloth? A candle? Or, maybe a hidden lit evergreen swag high upon a bookcase? If so, you are not alone. Let's continue to enjoy a little bit of Christmas all year long and remember what we learn each year during the Christmas season. Until next time, enjoy the life we are blessed to live.
