A Real Christmas Is Not Perfect- Our Half-Lit Tree

So, tonight we discovered the top half of our pre-lit tree went dark.

My initial reaction was…

“We need a new tree!”

Moments later, I decided…no, we don’t.

Christmas is not about a perfect tree or perfect decor.
It is about Jesus. The tree is a fun symbol, but it is just that-a symbol. Money and time can be spent on better things at this point, than a last minute tree.

So, when I look at my half-lit and half-dark tree…It will remind me… out of darkness, came Light. 

“The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.
Isaiah 9:2
Come, Lord Jesus! The Light of the World, who rescued us from darkness!
