This is our first actual Christmas tree in seven years. It is a monument to the healing in our hearts. When I walk into the house it smells like Maine, which helps treat my homesickness too. In just a few days I will be at the airport bringing my precious (young adult) children home for the holidays.
Love and prayers for all who love Christmas for what it stands for, and all who hate Christmas for the ungodly things done in the world.
For me, the holiday season is being redeemed One Day At A Time.
