Christmas 2017

     Did you have a wonderful Christmas?  I pray you did.

     As I was cooking yesterday I continued to meditate on a thought that was triggered by the devotional for the day in Jesus Calling. What a sacrifice it was for Jesus to come to earth!  Of course I had often thought of His sacrifice on the cross but I had never thought much about the sacrifice to come as a helpless baby dependent on others to care for Him. The creator of the universe, King of kings and Lord of Lord’s unable to do anything for himself and trusting himself to human care!  Can you imagine the sacrifice?  That thought kept my mind occupied all day.

    I got a new iPad for Christmas mainly so I could take it when we travel to have a place to store photos. Because I like to post photos to my blog while traveling, but couldn’t figure out how to do it on my old iPad, that has been my goal this morning.  The only way I could find to do it was to download an app specifically for Blogger. This is my first attempt to use it.  I thought I might as well post a photo of our tree before I take it down.  Hopefully this app is the solution I have been looking for.

      This year I decided to forego our usual huge live tree and instead pulled out the artificial one I have used in the basement. I set it on a small table and since it already had white lights I decided to decorate it in silver ornaments with a silver tree skirt (tablecloth) and wrap all gifts in shiny silver paper.  I then followed through with the silver theme on the fireplace. I was pleased with the results.

    And I am eager to see if the app works!
