O Christmas Tree, How Lovely Are Thy Branches

It’s a healing balm to my soul to see Big Blue standing tall against a crystal clear blue sky.

 Last year I decided to name my home. Another literature/writing teacher (who has become a great blogging friend) and I were discussing the fact that throughout history, people have named the property that they called home. We decided that, although the properties we own are not particularly large in numbers of feet or miles, they are still the portions of this earth that belong to us and represent us. I, of course want my home to represent more than me. It must also represent an open door to the Lord and His gracious presence because that’s what my life is all about. So I named my home ‘Beulah Rest.’ I was just thinking today that this magnificent tree standing here, against the backdrop of that gorgeous sky, is the perfect picture of rest and of God’s amazing presence in His creation.
