Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story Christmas tree inside the box did not seem to suffer any damage. That was not the worst of it. Neither of us moved until we had examined the situation and much to my alarm the box had fallen within one half inch of my wife's foot. At this moment, I was sweating profusely. Then I heard her softly, almost whisper, say, “You can be glad it missed my toe.” I was. My greatest temptation at the time was to laugh. I mean, really laugh out loud. One glance at my wife informed me that to laugh out loud at this moment was to jeopardize my toe. Sometimes the best form of valor is to laugh inside without your face knowing you are laughing. Later that evening as we were sitting around the Christmas tree drinking some eggnog I thought of a verse of Scripture. “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest” (Ecclesiastes 9:10). Tis the season to reflect on all the work that our hands have found to do during the past year. The Christmas tree is just a symbol of working together and it is always the outcome that matters not the process. Tweet
