Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
There is nothing like a serious health crisis to teach us to number our days! It started on April Fool’s Day (yes, God does have a sense of humor!) in 2012 and continues still. How it will end? Only God knows. It’s been a long journey for me as well as for my husband. It’s not been easy, but God has taught me much. And one of those nuggets of wisdom is to celebrate life!
Celebrate the big things but even more so the little things.
Celebrate other people’s accomplishments.
Celebrate the mundane, the unusual, and the downright silly.
Celebrate life—it is a gift from God!
For the past several years, we’ve cleared off our enclosed porch and filled it with Christmas cheer! And Christmas trees–lots of them! It’s just for fun and just for us–no grandbabies around to enjoy it. When I started experience side effects from my second (and hopefully last) brain tumor treatment much earlier than expected, we decided to forego the Christmas Porch this year. Too much work and I didn’t feel well enough to help.
But I know my husband……we not only have our Christmas Porch up but we have TWELVE Christmas trees this year. We only had ten, but when I said I’d like to have the twelve days of CHRISTMAS trees, my hubby made it happen! So between now and Christmas, I’m going to share the twelve days of Christmas trees.
Each day, I’ll post a picture of that day’s Christmas tree.
Hope you enjoy them and remember no matter what circumstances you find yourself in–celebrate life! It is truly a gift!
At this time of the year, we have so much to celebrate–the birth of a babe in a lowly manger. A birth that changed the world! So, come celebrate with me as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
