Better Late than Never

12/11/2018

From the time my son was less than a year old, I have set up a tree for Christmas. That was almost 30 years ago! Since then I have set aside a small sum of money yearly to add to the decorations I have.

The first thing that always gets set up is the tree. The tree reminds me of the tree that my Saviour died on for me and everyone… The green leaves remind me of the life He rose from the dead to give. Splashes of red on the tree often remind me that His blood was shed for me. The decorations on the tree remind me of the abundant life He promises – so much! The lights tell me yet again how He is the Light in a dark world; I am thankful. The gifts under the tree are reminders of the most wonderful Gift, and also of the gifts the Holy Spirit.

Normally I would set up Christmas decorations by the end of October. Any later, I would be swamped! This year, though it is already November, I am very glad to have help! Better late than never indeed!

The decorations promise to be nicer than ever this year. Looking forward to the end result.
