It’s been great fun decorating this year. Experimenting with old familiar objects in
new ways has keep me darting and dashing…and digging through boxes looking for
just the right things to put in each room. Everything has come together nicely and
love walking through the house each day. Since this was our first Christmas
here, each room took on it’s own personality. The living and dining room
is decorated in muted shades of metallic gold, green, blue and brown. Letting color
be my guide rather than style, the room whispers of warmth, worn elegance and whimsy.
The only thing missing are family which will be here soon…. and my precious friends
who will not. Nevertheless, I am grateful and thankful for the bottomless list of
blessings God has given us but most of all, His son, Jesus. Oh how I love Him! My heart,
like the manager, holds Him in wonder and adoration. Praying that the radiant light
of His love will illuminate my path and reveal more of His truth and goodness. May
we triumph in the joy of His reality now and forever. Merry Christmas.
