I came across this story and thought it was beautiful. I'm really enjoying this season with my family! Money is a bit tight and I am a simple shopper doing most of my shopping on-line. I have a lot of time to just enjoy the celebration of our Savior and not get lost in the hustle and bustle of the season!
The Meaning of the Christmas Tree:
Each part of the Christmas Tree celebrates Christ's birth and tells the story of how God sent His son to earth. The wood reminds us of the manger where He lay and the rugged cross where He gave His life one day. The evergreen shows the eternal life Christ gives~ anyone who believes in Him forever lives!
The decorations represent blessings from above and inspire us to thank the Lord for His tender love. The shining lights show us how we're to do the same as we share His grace and seek to glorify His name. So may each beautiful tree bring honor to our King, and may we celebrate Christ's love in everything!
