I love decorating my home to reflect Christ at Christmas. It’s so very simple. and such a tool for teaching little ones, and hopefully big ones.
As I look at my tree, one of my favorite things is the word JOY. I have a number of ornaments, decorations and dishes with the word Joy. It’s one of my favorite words – well I do love hearing Mom and Nana too, and Babe when my husband says that.
I love collecting ornaments that have special meanings. The tree has crowns, faith ornaments, cross ornaments, peace ornaments, heart ornaments and so much more in memories from the kid’s childhood until present day, and then there are ornaments Mom gave us.
I love nativities and have at least one in most of my rooms except maybe the kitchen. I shared my largest nativity in a post here. It was from my Mom. This one is in my bedroom – just a platter but speaks loudly.
I love, love, love these pillows that say Fall on Your Knees. I think those will stay out from now on.
For years it’s been a tradition of mine to buy an ornament for the kids – let’s say 38 years and 36 to be exact that say son/daughter. Sadly, I’m giving that tradition up this year as well as some others. I did pick up a few for the grands, but this is the last.
Remember He is the only reason we have this season. Rejoice. Spend some moments on your knees and thank Him.
