Collection of Ashton Drake Angel & Baby Jesus Porcelain Ornaments

You know how it begins...
Your first Christmas together with just a few tree ornaments...
Children arrive and with them arrives more ornaments.
Little hands lovingly create more ornaments...
Like reindeer clothespin ornaments and picture ornaments...
And more and more ornaments...
Add to that your own handmade ornaments...
Ornaments from dear family and friends...
The tree b-u-l-g-e-s with precious ornaments!



Now, I LOVE each of those heartfelt ornaments

but...

I have a few very special ornaments. so... I put up a small tabletop tree each year just for my special ornaments.

As children grow and leave the nest, many of those dear homemade ornaments now bedeck their own tree.

My little tree has now grown to full size. Filled with my most cherished ornaments.

Each Christmas I sit quietly by the glow of this tree and gaze on each little angel, cradling a tiny baby, and reflect on what it means that Jesus is:

The Lamb of God
Messiah
Almighty God
Emanuel
God is with us
Son of God
Prince of Peace
King of Kings

The Light of the world
Wonderful Counselor
Almighty God



For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah: 9:6

I was thinking just the same thing as I dressed my tree yesterday. So many ornaments and each one has a meaning. Who gave it to me or where I bought it and why. Your collection of special ornaments is beautiful.

Yes, I suspect many of us could write a family history just with our ornaments. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful collection at MM. :)
