Not really 'tis the season, yes, but in sorting through old photos I wanted to pull all the Christmas tree pics. Probably this most recent one was my favorite- the tree had this brilliant curve towards the top. It was sad and in need of some TLC. Christmas 2 in Charlotte we kept our tree up until almost March. If we ever had the condo door open to the balcony we could hear people comment on how *idiotic* it was to keep the Christmas tree up that long. So we did miss the tree pickup and had to call in a special one to our condos. Yes of course they chose to pickup in the section that was not our own and so we were (read: J was) forced to drag that dried up thing all the way up the street. There was a trail of needles for months. One thing I was super pumped about was the fact that our tree, our not-watered-in-weeks tree, never failed to provide that beautiful Christmas tree smell.

Happy Anniversary to Dad and Mom Jenkins- 40 years!
I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay and He set my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord.
