2020 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 6

Not So Wordless Wednesday

The Big Tree

This year there will be three trees in the house. We have had as many as five in years gone bye. My wife loves decorating a tree. She savors every decision and ornament placement. This tree will be the focal point and center piece of our Christmas celebration. There are ornaments on this tree that were bought in the past couple of weeks and ornaments that have been on our trees for forty-six years. The blog header currently features one of the forty-six year old decorations. Here are a few of the newer pieces.

Christmas is about the celebration of life. We celebrate the birth of Christ. Christ is the creator of all things including life. God revealed to both Isaiah (49:1) and Jeremiah (1:5) that He knew everything about them before He placed them in their mothers’ wombs. God has a plan for every life He creates. I don’t understand it all, I just accept the fact that God is faithful in all things. Not only did God create life, but He created eternal life and those who accept Christ as their Savior receive that gift. I know for a fact that God created me to be an architect and I know that I am going to spend eternity in the presence of my Savior. May you celebrate Christmas secure in the knowledge that the Son of God lives within your heart. Sing We Now of Christmans

    Great music here, the tunes are widely available but I loved the choral performance. The second one is again a familiar song but made fresh by a different arrangement and the violin is wonderful.
    I love your ornaments, great job photographing them as well.

  2. Your wife is a whiz with decorating. Wow. Beautiful.

    Love both the videos. I smiled all the way through this post.

  3. Lots of people seem to be starting Christmas a bit earlier this year. Thanksgiving weekend is a popular time, but I’ve seen displays – not in stores – out as early was early November. Guess we need the spirit to lift us up a little earlier this year.

    1. I think the whole Covid thing made people decide they needed a little Christmas cheer early this year. Many folks working from home had a little more time on their hands since they had no commute to and from the office.

  4. Your wife has some wicked decoration skills (as we might say where I live).One of our best ornament stores went out of business last year – I think your wife would have loved to visit it. It was a store with many, winding, narrow aisles and around each corner would be a treasure. Your post brings back some of those memories. I enjoyed the Celtic Women video, too.

  5. It’s only December 2nd & your blog is absolutely fabulous. I almost feel like when I was a kid. Thank you kind sir for the transformation. I truly need it. I’ve had two horrible days so far & it topped off with a friend of mine passing away. She was one fantastic lady & she was my last boss’ wife & she was 98. Truly she is now a Christmas Angel. Have a wonderful day my friend, and compliment your wife on the most fantastic decorations I have ever saw. God bless…

    1. Any joy that this blog might bring to someone is purely intentional. It is difficult to lose someone during this season. My father passed away 11 years ago on December 16, so I know what it means to celebrate Christmas with a heavy heart. Have a blessed day.

      1. OMG I’M SO SORRY! My Dad passed in January 15th, so at least the holidays were over, but no matter what time of year it is definitely a heavy heart when you lose a loved one. God bless my friend! hugs
