Christmas Decorations

Decorating the tree always mean a trip down Memory Lane.

This one's from a missionary family who visited our church in 1995. It shows St Isaac's in St Petersburg.

This is a tiny hand-painted picture of the log cabin that was the first St Louis sem.

This is from a family at Gary's vicarage congregation. The words painted on the cross are "He gave His only Son," and every year it hangs in a prominent spot near the star on top of the tree.

This is from the organist at Gary's vicarage congregation. My mom loved the pottery cherub face from the first time she saw it, and commented on it nearly every year she visited at Christmastime.

These clowns are also from the organist in Jackson. The poor fellows have rendezvoused with Elmer's Glue more than once, but 24 years later we still have 'em.
