Topping the Tree

My early gift for Christmas, yes I picked it out myself, was Photoshop Elements 13.  It's a big jump from the last one I had...10. Anyway. I've taken some time off today to play with it while I should be cleaning.  I just had to get a start on Christmas layouts, even though I still have pictures from back in October that are crying out for some attention.

Here is my baby boy and his little Caleb doing their trick of putting the star up on top of the tree. Thinking about the fact that I have to climb up a step ladder to place mine. There is a little unfairness there. We were not all created the height department.

Many if not most trees are topped by a star.  Do you know why? If you are of my generation, you do. If you are of my children's generation, you probably do. But, if you are in your twenties, you may not. Those younger WILL NOT know useless we teach them. They will not learn in school and they probably will not learn from movies or TV shows. Their friends will not likely tell them. Christmas, because it has to do with the Christ child, is being wiped from our country.

We have three active enemies of Christmas: atheists, Muslims and worst of all, socialists who want the state to be the god of the people.

Put a star atop your tree and explain its role to your young visitors. It represents the star that pointed the way to the baby Lord Jesus...asleep in the hay. You'll need to talk about Jesus as well. The Bible tells us to teach our children throughout the day, along the way.

Deuteronomy 11:19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
