2012 Christmas Music Marathon Day 11

Several days ago I posted an example of my wife's creative gift when it comes to decorations, and I promised to show you a few more items.  Traditionally our house is filled with the Christmas colors of red and green.  Last year was no exception.  Our mantle looked like this.  My wife did all of the decorations.

This year, because she is hosting an event at our home, she decided that gold and silver would be more appropriate.  So here is what she came up with.  This is what makes Christmas special around our house.  I never know what the house is going to look like for Christmas, but I do know it is going to be beautiful.

In a year that has been filled with drought, hurricanes, and other storms of life, it is difficult to imagine that life will be good again for some.  People have lost their homes, their possessions, and even their loved ones.  The only thing they have left is hope.  The question is, where does our hope lie.  If it lies merely in friends, family, the Red Cross, or the government, then we will eventually be disappointed.  Usually sooner than later.  Our hope must rest in The Light.  The light of the world was born on Christmas day.  In Him there is hope, there is joy, there is peace, there is strength, and there is comfort, regardless of what we are going through.  We can sing Hallelujah, the Light Has Come.The 2012 Christmas Music Marathon Marches on.  Enjoy.
