Tangled Lights
A reminder of what the Christmas season is about
3 2

Are you preparing to hang Christmas lights at your home? 

If you’re like me, you probably wait and hang your lights the day after Thanksgiving. That’s when you’ll find me out on the roof. 

But first, this weekend, I have to pull the lights out of the boxes in the garage, get them untangled and replace any burnt out bulbs. I’ve learned over the years that a little preparation beforehand saves me a ton of frustration later (actually my wife taught me that). So then when I do plug the lights in, my house will shine brightly. 

I’ve also learned that those “tangled lights” are a reminder to me of what the Christmas season is about;   celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ and the gift of His love. Love that can help untangle those knots in our hearts that dim our lights and keep us from loving others fully. 

This Christmas season, I hope your “lights” untangle easily and God’s love shines brightly on you!

Blessings-

Paul Fredricks

    We don't have to climb up on the roof this year. We left the hangers up last year. ,-)

      @Ruth No way do I leave my lights on all year long. Nature damages them.

    I think Steve and Amy are so so so funny in the morning! I LOVED the story where the family used twice as much bourbon glaze on the HAM on Thanksgiving, when suddenly a burst blew the oven door open and spread blue flames across the kitchen! Hahahah that is the funniest story but Steve, Amy, and they all have the funniest reactions to these stories it is hilarious! I love listening during work!

  • This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all.
  • There are certain moments when you have a choice. You can either laugh or cry. We moved last weekend. With 2 kids. It was exhausting. Then, our furnace broke. Yes, the day we moved in. So, faced with this very cold dilemma we had a choice. We could scream and throw a tantrum and freak out. Or, we could laugh.
