I like receiving beautiful Christmas Cards, and this year I'm finding it a chore to get mine into the post.
I'm known for my Christmas Cookies. My children are wondering when those tasty treats will be popping out of the oven. So far, I've baked one batch. *Phew* Need to step it up!
We finally put up our Tree and now it feels like Christmas. I inhale the pine scent like freshly brewed coffee. That's not my tree, I have yet to take a picture of mine.
Why do decorated Christmas Trees make me feel all cozy and peaceful on the inside? Do they have the same effect on you?
Now, I must tackle the bevy of gifts loitering around my bedroom. Wrapping is another big job, but I take pleasure in personalizing them with homemade ribbons and bows. I've even cut my Holly Bush and added raffia and Holly to the gifts. It makes a pretty presentation. No wonder it takes me forever.
However, for me, this is the real meaning of Christmas...
Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
He's so pure and simple, and full of Love!
What does the season mean to you?
I'm with you on the Christmas trees making you feel cozy. I'm the same way and can't even say why. I hope you get everything done that you need to do and then can relax and have a fantastic holiday with your family. :)ReplyDelete
I finally wrapped the pile of gifts in my office this past weekend and I think our cards went out the first week. (I just buy the stamps.)
Whatever you don't finish, it will be all right.
And yes, something about a Christmas tree is really peaceful.
Julie, Thanks for dropping by. Good Luck getting everything ready for your holiday.Delete
Alex, You're right. It will be perfect no matter what...
Sounds like Christmas is your season. For the love of all that's good, get to baking those cookies (and then express mail some to Ghana) :)ReplyDelete
hahaha...I will, Nana...if the kids don't get to them first...Delete
Fantastic post. I love the joy and giving that I see this time of year.ReplyDelete
I'm already done with cards and gifts. I started sending and handing things out over the weekend.
I love, love, love Christmas trees. They do make me feel cozy! Good luck with all of the holiday craziness!ReplyDelete
Christmas evokes a feeling of serenity. I love all of the trappings (trees, lights, gifts), but if there were no Jesus, there would be no Christmas. This is a big birthday celebration!!!ReplyDelete
Medeia, you're way ahead of me this year. Also love this time..Delete
Liz, good luck to you too...
Robin, Amen! You're so right.
This is a great post...I've been struggling to get my Christmas spirit back since we lost my grandma a couple years ago. Maybe next year. It did feel wonderful like that, once upon a time.Thanks so much for the pictures, I loved them.ReplyDelete
I'm not Christian, so Christmas is a secular holiday in my household that I like to view as a time for family! Hard to believe it's almost here already. Good luck tackling everything you still need to do for the holidays and not getting overwhelmed!ReplyDelete
