All decked out
I bought this beautiful, fragile wheat tree topper at Ikea. I love the shimmery gold color, it's simple style, and the fact that it's so intricate and made from grass! It just looks like the precious nativity star, doesn't it?
And our lovely little tree dressed in gold, brown, and green (of course). I always gravitate toward these colors even though I do love the traditional reds and greens, too. And the ornaments that I choose always seem to end up being birds and dragonflies and every other winged thing.
I love the Lord who is the Master Gardener, my beautiful family, my humble home, and all things organic, natural, and ancient.
"I AM the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." John 15: 1 & 5
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Amen
