Seeds from my garden aka Morning Glory is doing this Christmas Tree Treasures today. You share some of your favortite decorations and memories behind them. Go over to her site link yourself up and participate!
My first one is my tree toper, the angel sitting on the piano! the tree is kind of tall for this room so she doesn't quite fit. I will be getting a real tree this weekend and short enough so she can sit up there. I love angels. She reminds me that we are never alone and we are surrounded by so many of these messengers from the Lord.
I love this decoration simply because my sister Shash made it for me. I love my sister a lot and I miss her and having Christmas together. I miss having our kids have Christmas together too, something that we dreamed of when we were little. She lives in Ontario and I live in BC, kind of hard to do when you both have 4 kids each. Love you shashy.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE precious moments.....always have...always will. I have a few ornaments that hang on the tree that are pm as well. I just get such a sense of well being looking at them and now I have a daughter who to me anyways, kind of looks like a precious moment figurine. I also love this set cuz my kids can play with it and I don't have to worry about them breaking it...however they have lost a sheep a shephard and the star!!!
I bought this when I was 19 and just pregnant with Morgan. I bought it at the Christmas Store in Banff Alberta. My friend Gerda came over to Canada from Belgium to visit me and I took her to Banff. She was my roommate from YWAM (Kenya), 2 years prior. It brings me all sorts of memories from that time, not all good, but overall I see that Jesus was with me, He died for me, He loves me and He is the reason for the season and I love Him.
