One Room Christmas Tour…

Twas the night before the blog tour and all through the web, I was searching and fretting; it was going to my head.

One Room Christmas Tour

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, “but they’re old, they don’t match, they’re not cute enough to share!”

Christmas Decor

The children were nestled all snug in their beds, and I freaked about garlands and flocked trees dancing in my head.

Away to Instagram I flew like a flash, “why did I enter this contest??” I asked.

“I don’t belong, I’m not as good, I need to run back to Target” the thoughts all say.  When what to my wondering eyes should appear?  But a tiny plastic baby nestled in fake plastic hay.

And then in a twinkling, my doubts disappear.  The decorations are fun and they’re meant to inspire.  But the true inspiration was there all the while.

Christmas Tour

He’s humble, He’s meek; His yoke is easy to bear. He invites me to rest and be at peace with him there.

I so often turn Him down for what I think will fulfill. But tonight, for now, I just need to be still.

Christmas Home Tour

True joy is in Him, and in my darkness, He is the Light.

So, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    You and me both girl. We didn’t have a spot of sun and I was nervous about my photos. Ugh.
    But, I can’t control the weather! Your home looks lovely, bight, welcoming and warm! I love rhyme and you closed with a winner! Gorgeous shot 🙂 Happy Holidays!!!!

    Oh Bethany, this is so good. So beautiful and so well said. I commend you for using this space to speak your heart. This is what changes people. Not a perfectly decorated space. But a kind (and still beautiful reminder) that contentment is best. On another note, I am really finding that a well decorated space makes the simplest seasonal decoration pop. It is like the extra earrings to the room. You don’t need a ton of accessories just a few things that nod to the season. Well done friend. This is just lovely.

    • Bethany December 16, 2015 at 10:01 am #

      Thank you so much, Ashley. That means a lot to me.

  17. Tina December 16, 2015 at 9:45 am #

    This is so darling and so apt! Made me tear up. Love that our precious babies with their sweet little playthings can remind us of the most precious Baby of all!

    • Bethany December 16, 2015 at 10:02 am #

      Thank you, Tina!
