Late one Christmas Eve, a loving grandmother, knowing she might not live to share the next Christmas with her family, asked God to provide a gift, a legacy of His grace to her, that she could give to her family and friends that would stand the test of time. The answer came to her within the warm glow of the family's Christmas tree. There, graced among its branches, wonder unfolds as its lights, ornaments, garland, and the pinnacle crowning glory share secrets of life and love that transcend loss and fear and bring hope the year through.
What, then, is its meaning? What story does it tell? Perhaps it takes a Grandma's heart to reveal how the Christmas tree stands to tell the greatest story of all: the true meaning of Christmas, yet also our lives, through the Testimony of the Tree.
