"IF NOT FOR THE MIRACLE...O' Christmas Tree"

~My La Chaumière de Briarwood
CHRISTMAS TREE~
Christmas 2009

MY CHRISTMAS TREE

Proudly dressed in glitter and lace
Shimmering pink she takes her place
Ribbons and Roses, she's clothed to the nines
Filling the room with the fragrance of pine

Bedazzled with ornaments
Twinkling and bright
She shines through the darkness
A beacon of light

Carefully holding
Her memories of love
She stands representing
The One from above

For all of her beauty
For all that we see
If not for the Miracle
She'd just be a Tree.

(c) Rebecca S. Nelson/2009

Blessings to you as your prepare your heart and home for CHRISTMAS...Rebecca

Rebecca this tree is so lovely!! I love the little poem too!

I got one of my little trees up today but I seem to be in slow mode this year with the decorating! I usually put a tree in each room but just might opt out -
