Decorating for Christmas

After church and the church dinner I came home today and rearranged our dining room so that I could put up our Christmas tree.  I had almost decided that I would not put up a tree this year since our children and grandchildren will not be here this Christmas but I realized that Christmas is a very special holiday for me.  It is a time to celebrate the birth of our Jesus Christ, Lord and Saviour.  No, a tree is not what Christmas is all about but I enjoy the beautiful white angel that sits on the top of our tree, the nativity set that is under the tree and the beautiful blinking soft lights that I sit and watch in a candlelite room while listening to Silent Night and sipping on a cup of hot tea and nibbling on a freshly baked warm snickerdoodle cookie

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.  I pray that you will be blessed  with the  joy and peace and love of the season.

I take my Jim Shore Angels out of the cabinets where they are have been displayed behind glass all year since last Christmas. 

Soft lights, soft music, hot sweet tea and warm cookies.

 One year Danny and I were Christmas shopping and I saw the Prayer and Promises figurines and I started crying.  They touched my heart, I have always known our little Amy Anne is an angel.  Danny then gave me one of the figurines each year for a couple of years. 
These figurines also come out from behind glass to sit on the tables at Christmas each year.

I like to put some of my Christmas village figurines in some of my blue fruit jars with a little snow...

I heard from some of you...wanting to know what kimono pattern...I made a few hats for my daughters as in the previous blog.
