Christmas Tree

This is my first Christmas tree that I bought for my apartment. I was supposed to buy a huge tree but I opted for a smaller tree. However, I already bought the ornaments like that (shown above) so it looked a little tacky, but I love my tree anyways! It’s simple and it represents Christ-mas and his blessings over my life.

I love Christmas and all the things that entails it. “It is the most wonderful time of the year,” like we always say when it’s December.

It took me a good 40 minutes to set this up, from the moment I unpacked them to the moment I took this picture. While doing so, I was listening to Christmas carols. It made my heart feel warm and loved.

This year, is completely different compared to last year. I am more blessed. I feel blessed. I see all the things and people that God have bestowed upon me. I have a grateful heart. I am happy and content and I could not ask for more than what He gives me.

He is truly amazing to me.

When the song of the angels is stilled,

when the star in the sky is gone,

when the kings and princes are home,

when the shepherds are back with

their flocks, the work of Christmas

begins; to find the lost,

to heal the broken,

to feed the hungry,

To release the prisoner,

to rebuild the nations,

to bring peace among the people, to

make music in the heart.
