Listening to my favorite Christian radio station, WCIC, I heard the announcer ask a great question for us to share about today: How does your personality show up in your Christmas tree?
I was thinking about that as it pertains to our tree and realized that my tree really does reflect me! I don’t know if it reflects my personality, however, as much as my priorities. For instance, our tree has no decorating theme. It’s decorated with ornaments that reflect our family members and our experiences as a family. Many of the ornaments were homemade by the kids. Mark and I also give our kids one ornament every year that represents something that happened in their life that year. So everytime we decorate, we also reminisce.
When our kids get married or move to a home of their own, I pack up their ornaments in a shoebox and give it to them as a gift. This way they have some ornaments to start with as they establish their own homes and families.
So how does your personality or priorities show up in your tree?
Today’s giveaway is my book My Hearts at Home: Becoming the Intentional Mom Your Family Needs! This book explores the important role “home” plays in a family’s journey. By looking at 12 roles that home plays in our life, you’ll be inspired to create a home environment that fills your heart in more ways than you can imagine.
