  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.
    Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more. But, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.
    Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me. The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and with style.

    As the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “Thou hast made me out of nothing, hast recalled me from a far country, translated me from ignorance to knowledge, from darkness to light, death to life, misery to peace, folly to wisdom, error to truth and sin to victory.”
