Our Christmas Tree (my first ever)

Way back in my home farm days and Christmas season is coming then the houses around us puts Christmas decorations and all sorts of  Christmas related thing, and looking back at our house... there's nothing, you can't see that Christmas is coming in our home co'z grandma is sick and all my aunts are gone to the city to seek for better life and doesn't want to come back, my uncles on the other hand are gone as well working at other people's farm (my uncles would leave very early in the morning and would come home late at night drunk).

What a life back then!

Then... I promise to myself that I will never get married early as young girls in my town did. I will finish my studies and work hard to get rich (this was then my ultimate goal). I was bitter at life but still study hard. I did finished my studies but God had changed my goal and now I am happy and contented with what I have knowing the Lord will provide all my needs according to his richness in heaven.

I don't enjoy Christmas season back then... the only thing that makes it good was Christmas vacation from school and of course school Christmas parties. But now... I'm very excited about Christmas co'z I now know what's the meaning of it and whom it for.

Then... i also have my first ever Christmas tree (I know we would tell people it's for my girl, but the truth   deep inside of me is... it's for me :))

Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!

What a pretty bright Christmas tree!
We did not have any Christmas decor long years ago. Now we are thankful to put up a tree and decor the house for the holidays.
