Counting Down, Looking Up

Ready or not, December 25th comes. I’m ready enough. My trip to Philly last weekend was so inspiring that I came home and got the tree decorated and the stockings up. Then I rearranged the living room. My friend says that’s the sign of an insecure woman…always rearranging furniture. Maybe. But I really like the furniture this way…for now.

 I was inspired by my sister’s newly arranged den, which is much classier. I have to rely on the old farmhouse charm…such as it is.

But all the trappings of a happy Christmas aside, this is the focus, this is the reason to look up: God sent his son, to save us from our sins. That’s my reason to rejoice… all year long, all life long.
