It makes me chuckle, this picture. How the tree is dwarfed by the presents. The presents. How far we've come in so many ways.
I can assure you that our Christmas this year will not look like this. For many reasons.
I have moved slowly but surely from the commercialism since that time in my life. I don't want to teach my children that this is what Christmas is all about.
Funny how God moves us. Forward.
