i love it…and i love seeing glowing lights twinkling around my house, i honestly want to keep them up all-year-long. it just makes things cozy and….romantic. (romance hahahahahahahhahhaha)
when it came to decorating this year, i kept things so incredibly simple that i almost didn’t feel it “deserved” to be posted about.
then i started really thinking about everything…and i reminded myself that simple is good, and it is what i’ve been striving for this season. there is something beautiful about minimalism and cutting greenery from your yard and filling it in vases around the house (you won’t see all of that, i just didn’t feel like taking pictures of it haha).
i truly believe in NOT beating yourself up over not having every ornament on the tree, every piece of garland you own put up, every strand of lights perfectly hung.
it’s ok to put up a few things, step back and say yes, this is beautiful, simple, and it works.
Christmas isn’t about how many decorations i do or do not put up.
it isn’t about how many presents i wrap under the tree.
it isn’t about how many times i listen to christmas carols.
and it really isn’t about ME at all.
it’s all about Jesus.
His entrance into the world, His 33 years, His love, sacrifice, devotion, and the gift His life, death, and Resurrection brings for each one of us.
He is so good.
pppssttt did you see the lingering halloween mask hanging around?
i really have no explanation of why it hasn’t been put up other than i’m lazy
did you go all-out with decorating this year?
or did you keep it simple?
what are your thoughts on decorating for Christmas?
