Well written. I enjoyed, Thanks for sharing!
Very well written; however, it's the "taking down" of the Christmas tree that I keep putting off. Putting it up, putting the lights and decorations on it is a breeze compared to taking each decoration down, and packing them away. Each to our own! Right? Nice job.
I"m sure I've never heard these verses applied to putting up a Christmas tree before--and I love it! Our "trials" don't have to be earth-shattering, do they? The promise is still there.
So you're the reason decorating a tree with lights can be so tough! I always suspected in the back of mind...
You need a little more description of your battle, pine needles jabbing you in the nose, the tree inviting you into its prickly embrace, etc. You get the idea.
Good final paragraph and excellent tie in to James. (But somehow I don't know if James quite envisioned this kind of trial!)
Good job! Keep writing! Merry Christmas!
