christmas tree

 Thank God for the “Christmas” tree. He bore our sins on the tree (1 Peter 2:24) that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.

With the words by Dottie Rambo, I point to the Christ who came as a Babe: “He left the splendor of Heaven, knowing his destiny, was the lonely hill of Golgotha, there to lay down his life for me…” (Dottie Rambo)


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

      I started out with a video of Aretha Franklin who sings a beautiful arrangement of
      “O Christmas Tree” and in the process wound up with this. I had used the first line in my post so I did a switch. I didn’t even know Dottie Rambo did anything with a guitar. But I liked it. The picture with the red ornaments depicted blood drops to me; might be too vague for others, but not if the Lord directs that thought. Thanks for reading and for the comment.

    What a lovely song. I haven’t heard of Dottie Rambo, so it’s my turn to thank you for an introduction. It’s a good season for new gifts, as well as for old traditions, and music of all sorts really is at the heart of so many celebrations.

      I am so glad to have added a bit of “new” to your experiences. Busy time, isn’t it? In case we don’t pass again between now and Christmas, I take this chance to wish you a Merry Christmas.
