Last year after Christmas I was cutting up our tree. I saved the largest, and straightest piece of the stump and let it dry in my garage for a year. All with today in mind. So after church this morning and then a few carefully orchestrated “mishaps’ in the kitchen I was thankfully ousted from the kitchen where my wife and daugthter are preparing our Cristmas dinner.
I took the little log and mounted it on some osb. I sliced it into sections. It yielded only three 1-1/4”x7-1/2” pieces about 1/2” thick But that was plenty. It took me about 45 minutes to make this cross. A symbol of the meaning of Christmas. And it gives me great pleasure that last years tree, which gave us so many happy memories, will grace next years tree in the form of this very simple ornament.
Merry Christmas fro me and mine, to you and yours. May you be surrounded by love and happiness on this very special day.
