Every year we drag out boxes packed with memories of years gone by. Each ornament holds a story and every decoration reminds us of something or someone we hold near and dear to our hearts.
The other day, while I was unpacking the boxes of decorations for the tree, I found a 22 year old bronze engraved reminder of our first Christmas together. Homemade bells with pictures of our children, construction paper elves adorn our mantle and banners inscribed with the names and titles of Jesus hang beautifully on our tree as they remind us of our annual family vacations spent in Maggie Valley.
Those aren’t just decorations, they’re memories.
Before you know it, it will be December 26th and time to pack up those cherished memories where they’ll be hidden again until next year. This year, allow yourself some time to walk down memory lane. Reminisce about those special moments that brought you to this place as you thank the Lord for the gift of salvation, family, life, laughter and love.
Tell us about what makes some of your Christmas decorations so special. I look forward to hearing from you.
