For several years I have been wanting to put a live Christmas tree in an urn. I’ve seen it in several magazines that I get and I love the look. This year I took the plunge and I’m really happy with the results! My dear friend, Amanda, made me the beautiful glittered cards with the names of God on them. They are the focal point of the tree so that we are always reminded who we are celebrating and who He truly is. I really treasure these the most! I worked on the tree today, as well as the mantle (Rob had the painting done for me in Paris during a layover on his first trip to Africa) and chandelier in the living room. Tomorrow I’m going to work on the staircase.
Robbie is sick right now with some kind of sinus or bronchial infection. He is on medicine, so hopefully he will be back to himself in a day or two. He can’t really talk because his voice is almost gone, but he’s hanging in there. Otherwise, he is walking around pretty normally without the brace, which has made his daily activities so much easier. Yesterday was my birthday and last night we went out on a date. After our movie, we ran to Target where we ran into a few people that we know. It was neat to see their reaction to Rob walking around. It meant so much to see how happy they were to see him and we are still so grateful for your continued prayers.
