Oh, Christmas Tree

Is your Christmas season already hectic and hurried? In the midst of it of all, I hope there’s a place in your home or your memories that is restful and comforting. Here’s mine: this is a picture that David took in our house last Christmas. I love our little Christmas tree forest and our fireplace. The sight of the trees and the sound of the crackling fire never fail to relax me.

I wish I had some impressively deep insights for you in this post. Instead, I offer simply a prayer that you can carve out a time and place to rest in the warmth of Christmas and its true meaning.
