Wrapped in Love

Today feels like the day after Christmas,
you know those feelings you get when it's all over,
the mully-grubs as my mama would call it,

you know,

the house is empty and in complete dissaray, 
dishes need washing, 
wrapping paper litters the floor, 
the kids are gone 
and you're missing those babies.

Yet, I am filled with a deep sense of peace
and satisfaction that God is Emmanuel,
He indeed has come very near. 

So, until I can get the house in order, 
wrap the presents, and get ready for the next few days, 
I'll share some of the wrappings from Nashville. 

Sometimes all you need is a simple bowl of ornaments
and the lights on the tree to stir the emotions of Christmas.

Vintage ornaments take me back to a much
simpler day when trees were filled with
bulbs lights, Shiney brites, and icicles.

There was always something special about
sitting beside a lighted tree at bedtime.

Glass ornaments reflecting the lights adds more twinkle
to an already glistening ornament.

Both of my girls enjoy the vintage-like bulbs.

It's amazing how the tree changes when little ones are added.

I think we would all agree that
the sweetest wrappings come not in paper packages
but are wrapped in love from above.

These are our joy and delight.

I thank the Lord above,
for sending these loves to us.

Even sick with fever,
these little munchkins were full of joy.

Thanks for sharing our joy!

Merry Christmas,
