IT’S WONDERFUL – A Christmas Short Story (Part Five – Conclusion)

it's wonderful art by Karen Simpson(This week I’m posting “It’s Wonderful – A Christmas Short Story” in five installments.  You can read Part One by clicking HERE, Part Two HERE,  Part Three HERE, and Part Four HERE. Or you can read the whole thing in one place HERE.)

I’d typed out the experience while it was fresh.  Now what?  As I turned the nail over in my hand, I made a plan.

I got up from my desk and climbed to the crawlspace.  As quietly as I could, I pulled down the box with the parts of our scraggly fake Christmas tree.  It took me a while, but I got it all set up in the living room.   I softly sang Christmas carols I thought I had forgotten as I strung the lights and hung the ornaments.  After the tree was decorated, I plugged in the lights.  The soft multi-colored glow chased the midnight gloom from the room.  It matched the warm light that filled my being.

My wife will be so surprised in the morning.  Christmas morning!

I know it’s not much, but I’ve got to start somewhere.

For Him.

    WOW! I didn’t see this when you originally posted it, but it is wonderful! And just as I finished reading it and contemplating the story (It’s a Wonderful Life is one of my all time favorites) as you shared here, Dave put in a CD of the Easter music the choir will be working on. The first song was How Great His Love. How perfect!
    Thanks for this!
