As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...

♪ ♫ ♪  How lovely are thy branches  ♪ ♫ ♪

It's not part of the song, but...
far lovelier are the dear daughters
around the trees!

And the gorgeous photography is a gift
from my dear (and talented!) friend, Frances.
(♥ thank you ♥)

Linking up with Kristin's Gather Round Your Tree Linky Party


  1. Beautiful girls ànd nice photo's.
    Merry Christmas/gezegend Kerstfeest.

  2. Wonderful photos! Beautiful subjects. You're right, the daughters are more fair. What a darling kitchen tree. Love the gingerbread and the dried citrus. It must smell fantastic!

  3. "Far lovelier are the dear daughters" ..... amen! Nothing can compare to the faces of those who are most precious to us.

    But your trees are truly lovely, too. I'm so glad I got to see them.

    Hugs .....
