Christmas Tree Bargain

Scripture to Live By:
Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us). When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
Matthew 1:18-25

I was visiting my daughter in Ohio.  She and I decided to go to the American Cancer Society because they were having their 50% off everything sale.  We were just going to see what we could find.  As soon as I walked in the door I saw a Christmas Tree that was 9 feet tall with all the lights on it and the price tag read $80.00.  I ask the clerk if the tree was included in the 50% off sale.  She assured me that it was, so I told her I would buy it. My daughter reminded me of the last words my husband had said as we left to go shopping.  Which was, "Remember we only have a limited amount of room in the car". Our car is a Honda accord, and we had all our luggage and we had shopped at our favorite stores while we were there.  So I called my husband and ask if I could buy it and he said I could purchase it,  but we would not be able to transport it home which is approximately some 400 miles away. I ask my daughter if I could leave it at her house until we visited at Christmas and she assured me that we could.  The only thing was that I wanted to put it up at my own home for the holidays.  We took it to my daughters house in her van and set it up in the drive way so my husband could see what it looked like.

It looks good, but how am I going to get it in that little car in the back ground.  "Where there is a will there is a way," is what I say.  So we made a way in that little car.

This 9 foot tree is sitting in my sun room.

Now it is time to start the decorating.

 It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

 My Christmas Bear collection.

 These pictures do not do it justice.  This tree is simply beautiful and so full of lights.  I love the way it looks and for only $40.00.  This is a gift to me this Christmas. I am so thankful to find bargains such as this one.
