I love looking at the lights on our tree and thinking about how Christ is truly the light of the world, my light in the darkness, that his love can shine through any darkness. I love thinking of the lights of the stars in the sky that filled that night so long ago at a manager. I also think of it as the Tree of Life and the lights as the fruit or the love of God. I'm so grateful for all of our "worldly" reminders of Christmas that aren't worldly at all when you think about it.
Merry, Merry Christmas!
