Just Wondering…

I was just wondering, what is your favorite Christmas decoration? You know what I mean; the hand-painted and crafted kind made in China. Perhaps it is a snowman with a corncob pipe and a button nose with two eyes made out of coal. Perhaps it is a jingle bell placed on a little one horse-open sleigh dashing through fake snow. And no, an angel does not get its wings when it rings! Maybe it is a cluster of those Russian nesting dolls made up to look like diminutive Santas. It might be a manger scene of a father, mother, and little baby surrounded by sheep, shepherds, and several wise guys. But why would that be your choice? Only those who have placed their faith and trust in the child in the manger scene, grew up, was crucified, and rose from the dead, would truly understand why. Now let me ask you again, what is your favorite Christmas decoration? Makes one wonder…
