The Reflections

Today I am giving you a sneak peek preview of our Christmas tree. Just a tiny glimpse till I show it all in a later post. I thought I would start with reflections. The first two pictures are Phil and I reflected in my laptop screen, with just the top of the tree showing in the background. And can you see me and my camera in each ornament?


“God made his Son responsible for everything... His Son is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact likeness of God’s being… After he had cleansed people from their sins, he received the highest position, the one next to the Father in heaven.”
Hebrews 1

Hi Ginny,

Very nice idea, I have been visiting blog a lot the last weeks but it is very difficult to make comments from the Middle East. For some reason the internet gets blocked when I try.

Greetings,
Filip

Ginny, time really flies.. I remember you taking a few pictures of the reflections last Christmas if I am not mistaken... if I were to reflect back my life, I have countless thank you-s to say to our precious Lord..

It looks like you were having a great time taking these photos Ginny. Great reflections! I can't wait to see your tree, the glimpses are so pretty.

Beautiful reflections, Ginny. I especially love the one in your header!! (and, I am quite taken with that ornament, too!). blessings ~ tanna

I love the little piggy ornament. Or did I see that wrong. Whatever, so far it's a beautiful tree. I haven't put one up for years. It just seems silly for just me. And Hank would have it down it a second.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

HOW cute is that, these are super! I do like what I see so far on your tree.

Hope your day is good.

I love the first one of you in the ornament - so fuN!

LC said...

I enjoy your reflection pix. You inspired me last Christmas season to try to capture some similar reflections in giant ornaments adorning a huge tree in New Orleans. Alas, my tecnigue evidently needed more work to match your success. This year I will just enjoy your images. Thanks again for encouraging comments. I will have to check out the NIV application Boble you mentioned.

I love the bible verse used here.

I love this post!! I love your and Phil's reflections. My favorite is the pig. Is there a story behind the pig?

Best,

That was such a fun post to view!!! [oh and that golden pig ornament....my daughter would go crazy-wild over that one - she has collected pigs from I don't know when. Her house reflects P I G S!!!]

Hi Ginny, You are farther along in your Christmas decorating than I am. My husband and I are trying to find a living Blue Spruce at about 4' tall to use for a Christmas tree and then plant the tree in our spacious yard. Our local tree farm has sold-out so we are at square one again. Who knows? Have a great day today!

Chatty Crone said...

I did see your reflections - the bird was the hardest. Can't wait to see your tree.

We should be reflections of HIM!

Right?

Those are some beautiful ornaments with your reflection shining on them.
