What Kind of Light Person Are You?

This morning, one of my Facebook friends posted pictures of her tree, all beautifully lit in blue lights.  She said, “Yes, we are “those” kind of people who use blue lights!”  I was instantly intrigued….what “kind” of people use what color lights in their home?  My Nannie and Granddaddy always had blue lights on their tree, and it felt so peaceful and calming.  We use clear twinkly lights in our home, but I stare longingly at multicolored lights, giant bulbs, electric candle lights.  I love them all.  So here’s your poll….what color lights do you use in your decorating for Christmas?  And if you care to comment on your deep psychological reasonings for doing so, feel free!  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

 

Plugging in the Lights

Every evening before bed, my hubby and I walk around the house unplugging all the Christmas lights, and then each morning, we make the same circuitous route plugging them back in.  It would be rather ridiculous, if they weren’t so beautiful.  One minute, the tree is dark and drab, and with one quick electrical moment, Presto!  Beauty and sparkling lights everywhere.  The same old, same old house turns into a beautiful winter wonderland.  🙂

Some mornings, I forget to plug in the Light.  You know, the Light that turns me from drab Lisa into Presto! Lisa.  And my power source is always available, and never has outages unless I don’t plug in.  Jesus says, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  (John 8:12)  “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”  (Matthew 5:16)  Light extravaganza.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa
