Keeping Christ in Christmas-Our Jesus Tree

 I love Christmas. All of Christmas, the hustle and bustle, Santa Claus, snowflakes, but most of all I love Christmas because of Jesus. This year our family  wanted to decorate with more spiritual meaning but we found very little, not even any ornaments, when we went shopping for decorations. So we decided to come up with our own.  Mr. G, who is handy as all get out, used some boards he had on hand to build me a manger,  and the girls and I made paper ornaments proclaiming some of  the many names/titles  of Jesus. (We found the template online.) We added the angel ornaments we already had and proclaimed this our Jesus tree. Every time I look at it I have a good feeling and remember the true reason for Christmas.
