Christmas is a bridge.
We need bridges as the river of time flows past.
Today’s Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.
~Gladys Tabor (Still Cove Journal)
Decorations are going up around town. The Victorian House tour is next week. Christmas movies are on the Hallmark channel 24 hrs. a day. Singing Christmas carols at church. Reading the Christmas story.
I love this time of year!
This year we won’t really be decorating for Christmas…at least not like we normally do. Since we are in the process of moving we really can’t pull out all the boxes of decorations. There is no room for the Christmas tree in a living room with our possessions stacked everywhere. We are traveling back and forth from Tennessee to Ohio to work on our new house–not sure what days we’ll be where during the month of December. This year Christmas will be crazy and out of the ordinary for us. We are calling it our “family adventure”. Memories from Christmas ’08 will be packed in our family’s heart.
