This is so sweet...I like it! I teach in Children's Church and I could imagine the children's faces full of delight as I read the story to them.

I agree, this would be a very good story to help tie the Christmas events together. Good flow, nice characterization.

I like the way you tell this story from the tree's point of view. Well done and a delight to read.

My first impression was that many Christians, including myself, can identify with this story and be encouraged. We wait to grow into God's image, then wait to be situated in a perfect place where we can serve His purpose and glorify Him. Thank you. Angel

Nice work! I caught only one typo - should be "as the sun set". Very sweet piece and a good message. :)

I love to name things, but I've never named our Christmas tree .... yet. :) Your story inspires me. I enjoyed all the images of this small little tree trying to be big and impressive. :)

How heartwarming. A well written message. I agree, this would make a great children's story.
I could see it as an animated film, the way it played out in my mind.
