Let There be Light The anticipation of Christmas, the time spent preparing our house and lives for this special event, is the highlight of my year.
We light up our house and yard with a multitude of lights. Sparkling
white lights resembling the halo of an angel awaiting Christ's birth
are individually clipped onto the trim of our house. Each light is
turned up pointing towards heaven.
Our trees, bushes, shrubs and fence line twinkle with bright lights representing the star on the night of Christ's birth.
In the center of our side yard is a simple, homemade manger symbolizing
the lowly place of his birth, and a gentle reminder to all who pass by
that Christmas and all its lights are about Christ.
the star above the manger shining down on all the figures depicting the
birth of Christ. Even today when my family and I see a star above a
manger, we feel a pull to follow it, and to once again gaze upon the
reenactment of Christ Birth.
