Holiday: Christmas Decorations

December 13th, the home of a woman who works on our church and my friend burned to the ground. She, her husband and three boys lost everything. The entire church has been helping her set up a new home. A member of the church donated a condo they have been trying to sell. Helping someone who lost everything gives you a new perspective on Christmas.

She has great faith and really has been an inspiration to all that know her. Thankfully, her family will be at my home for Christmas.

I appreciate everything that I have; my faith, family, friends, this country and lastly, a home that is filled with love and beautiful things collected over the 25 years of marriage. I have a few more pictures of my decorations.

The baby Jesus

The entryway

The hutch in my kitchen

The Christmas Tree

Another view

This is one of my favorite ornaments, because my husband and I are like two peas in a pod.

This is the very first ornament that we bought as a family. My daughter reminds me of this angel every year.

And yes, the very Christmassy Star Wars ornament.

Or better than that, the Wicked Witch of the West

A very cute mouse eating a cookie.

Have a Merry Christmas, I will be delivering 28 cookie bags and will post pictures.
