When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins. Colossians 2:13 (NIV)

Day one in the Christmas Tree War. Fitted tree with round green boot. Inserted metal screws. Snowing: God’s attempt to inject some Christmas spirit into me. I’m warming to the idea.

Day two. Boot’s not working. Tree leans. Wife worried.

Day three. Tree resting against the wall. Boot empty of water. Needles cover the wife’s white carpet. Something will have to be done about the tree.

Day four. Met with the general tonight and reviewed our options. One, toss the tree and buy another. Two, toss the tree and go with a fake one. Three, skip Christmas.

Day five. Wife wants to retreat, regroup, and refit tree with new boot. I envision a rout.

Day six in the Christmas Tree War. Amputation. With crude tools the wife removed a portion of the trunk. Carpet littered with green needles. Lights askew. Not a holly jolly Christmas yet.

Day seven. Tree standing erect. Branches adorned with lights. Smell of Christmas in the air. We’ll see if this cease-fire holds.

# The tree was dead before we brought it into the house. From the number of needles on the patio, dead for a long time. Still we watered it, dressed it in lights, covered it with silver balls, and hung our favorite ornaments on its branches. How stupid is that, decorating a dead tree? Ah, but even dead, there is that smell…the sweet evergreen fragrance of excitement and joy and the promise of gifts received and given.
