The Meaning of the Christmas Wreath

Every Christmas wreath is more than just a decoration...
it's a special reminder of Jesus, the reason for our celebration.
The circle of a Christmas wreath is a never-ending ring,
a reminder of eternal love from our Lord and King.
The Christmas wreath is a sign of welcome, inviting all to enter in...
a reminder of Christ's invitation for all to come to Him.
The middle of a Christmas wreath is a bare and empty space,
a reminder of what life would be without Christ's love and grace.
So each time you see a Christmas wreath hanging from a door,
may your heart rejoice in the One that Christmas is truly for! ~Holley Gerth

i LOVE this! the only decoration i put up this year was a wreath, and i have never heard of this but it makes me happy to think my wreath symbolized these things. i didnt want to put out anything this year that was stressful, so the tree stayed in storage, ha! i am trying to focus on the real meaning of the season. thanks for posting this.
