To make the Christmas tree cutting more fun, why not pack warm treats in a picnic basket and have a snack right where you intend to get your tree? If picnicking is not your style, you can stop by a restaurant. Or, after the tree is safely back home, everyone can drive to the nearest shopping mall to purchase ornaments and series lights to decorate the tree, or like most of us, get down the box of ornaments stored in the attic.
Everything you ever got in your life, whether it was a situation, or circumstance or an event or physical reality, it was always preceded by thoughts. There was no physicalness to its reality, and it began with a thought. What you desire is becoming when you are happy. It is moving into manifested reality. And it is the state of joy that allows for it to show up. This is what Jesus meant when He so often said ask and it is given and believe it and it shall be.
If there is an annual holiday tree lane in your community, you can drive down the street each year and let your kids enjoy the sight of elaborately decorated houses and Christmas trees. If the weather permits, everyone can enjoy a stroll. The entire family can also get some inspiration here, about what decorations to hang on the tree back home. Making this part of the family tradition will let the kids see how other homes celebrate their Christmas.
So this year take the joy the season evokes and get inside it by sharing it. Learn Jesus as the happy and joyful life force He is. After all Jesus was the absolute emotional mix of whatever God represents for anyone.
May you carry the joy you create everywhere you go?
