Christmas Lights

The Christmas wreath on our door. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show.
The secret lies in an inner glow.
It's lighting a fire inside the heart.
Good will and joy a vital part.
It's higher thought and a greater plan.
It's glorious dream in the soul of man.
~ Wilfred A. Peterson (The Art of Living)
Mom so wanted a wreath for the front door with clear lights. We searched the internet, checked out trusty QVC and visited craft stores and home building supply stores.....nothing worked to her satisfaction. (I personally thought the one from QVC with the fruit and lights was pretty.) Finally, she found a lady who makes decorative accents for store displays and individuals. This is the wreath she made to Mom's specifications; simple with a few pine cones and berries and lights, of course, bright and clear and glowing.
