Sure I'll put a tree up, like every year, but what about the millions suffering with out food; let alone a tree? Christmas and the celebrating adds to my depression.
So would you like to read a cheesy story about a meaningful Christmas tree? Every year it gets harder and harder. This is Christmas?
This is what God wants? This is faith at work? Would they understand if we didn't get a tree?
The pine tree and all it's varieties are plentiful in my state. We usually go to a farm and cut a fresh evergreen to adorn our home. A family tradition.
If I could be something other than who I am, I would be a tree. Tall and strong, branches facing up, sun and sky above. No worries, no brain, nothing to do but grow, stand, dwell, shade, and raise my arms to the creator.
As an evergreen, I would wait to be cut with anticipation. Where would I go? Would I be the tree with all the mittens?
Maybe I'd be home for the holidays? Would it be happy and rich, or sad and poor? Would I be all alone in the lot? The one that no one bought?
