How does your Christmas tree look like?

My husband surprised me last Friday night a Christmas tree. The other special thing about it is that, it's a real pine tree!!! It's my first Christmas tree. :) When I was still in PI, I did Christmas decors at home, but no Christmas tree at all. I am quite happy about my first tree, specially that it's a real one. We put ornaments on it that night as well as the crafts that we painted ourselves (cat, santa, snowflake, bell, angel). Most of those self-painted cute ornaments were my husband's work. I only did the bell. I encourage everyone to share pictures of your Christmas tree too. It would be nice to share the spirit of Christmas through the Christmas tree that we each personally decorated with gladness in our hearts. Merry Christmas! :D

"Our Wedding Prayer"

Lord,help us to remember when we first met,and the strong love that grew between us.

To work the love into practical things so nothing can divide us

Grant us a Love that grows stronger with each passing year.

We ask for words both kind and loving

and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.

Guide us to overcome every challenge

and keep our dreams pure to each other always.

Dear Lord,we put our marriage into Your hands.Amen

If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them.
