The Evergreen

Garlands, boughs, trees and wreaths are a fragrant adddition to our homes at Christmas. The evergreen is an emblem of peace, joy, and victory and represents freshness, life, and rebirth. Martin Luther was the first Christian to bring evergreen trees indoors and he covered it with lit candles. It represents the light of the world and everlasting light. I love this picture. Daddy made this wreath back in 2007 for Christmas. Beautiful.
