My wish for you this Christmas

We trimmed our tree this week and amidst all the silliness, I caught a glimpse of my oldest son. I watched as he walked carefully towards the tree, cradling a glass bulb in his hands.

He looked at the tree thoughtfully, selecting a location that could be seen from anywhere in the room. Stood high on his toes, arms extending up as far as they could go and finally when I thought he wouldn’t be able to do it alone, he ever so gently placed the ball on the tree.

A look of satisfaction spread over his face, and I could tell he felt good about being trusted with an object so fragile, so cherished by all. My heart grew warm as I watched my son hold Peace in his hands and see what great care and responsibility he demonstrated to make sure this was something enjoyed by all this holiday season.


My wish for each of you
and a glimpse, perhaps, of the man he will become someday …

God bless the peacekeepers

What is Simple things Sunday?

This weekly photo share is all about taking time to photograph the everyday details that make your life unique, beautiful, and special. Each Sunday we gather here to share our photos with each other. To enjoy the beauty found in the ordinary and be reminded of just how important the simple things are.

Just a few quick rules to play:

1. Grab a button and include it in your simple things post.

2. Link back directly to your simple things post not your blog/website.
No links to other linky parties, giveaways or craft projects pretty please.
This linky is all about the photos.

3. Be sure to pop by and visit at least 3 other links and leave a comment.
Leave as many as you can.
