The Cutting of a Tree

The long awaited christmas tree has been cut down and is now in the dining room!! What a time we had getting that tree. It was a LABOR of love. Not the warm fuzzy kind of love either. The kind that keeps you from splitting and ruining your kids idea of a good christmas. The kind that helps you to let go of all the anger raging inside you and find it in yourself to forgive. The kind where you cut off your own selfish root and pray the fruit of perseverence will be produced in your kids. So this year the cutting down of the tree is a symbol of that for me. All season long I will purpose to think of that and remember it when I look at it.
