Hop over to Kelly's Korner and Show Us Your Life
We'd love to see your Christmas decorations!
What is it about Christmas trees… that makes me feel so good?
The sparkle, and the twinkling lights, upon the boughs of wood
It’s just a simple little thing, and yet it makes me smile
As I adorn the branches, and stand back to gaze awhile
The shiny balls and trinkets and the garland that I hang
Remind me of my jewelry, like a bracelet or a ring
Like necklaces of silver, or earrings made of gold
But it’s even so much more than that…there’s a story to be told
The tree points up to heaven, from which the baby came
To be our Lord and Savior and ultimately our King
This calls for celebration… let’s bring gifts for our dear King
And share our love with others as we hear the angels sing
It’s a means of adoration, it brings joy to every heart
To remember our dear Savior as the decorating starts
I put on the Christmas carols and I sing them as I work
And the fire in the fireplace is just an extra perk
The tree makes me feel happy and I sigh when it is done
Each year I stare with pleasure and declare it’s the best one!
The real ones smell so wonderful with their yummy, fresh, pine scent
But the fake ones are so easy to bring up from the basement
It doesn’t take too long to deck the halls with boughs of holly
But putting up that Christmas tree sure makes my heart feel jolly!
