Christmas Generosity

I was lamenting a bit earlier this year that we'd have no Christmas tree. I already purchased a nativity scene (which is gorgeous!) and couldn't justify the extra expense of more Christmas decorations this year.

Well, last week my husband brought home an 8 foot tree (our ceiling is about 7 1/2 feet). No tree skirt, no stand, no topper, no lights, no ornaments. But our house smells like pine!!

Our generous Aunt and Uncle (who also graciously opened their home, rent free, to me when I first moved up here after we were engaged) gave us lights, a skirt and a topper! My in-laws donated a tree stand. People from church have been giving us boxes of ornaments! It's incredible!

The generosity of these wonderful people is humbling. May the baby blessings of our sweet Infant Jesus richly reward them.
