Guest Posting: The Ministry of Vintage Christmas Toys and Joys

It’s always a Very Vintage Christmas in my home!

I’m not ashamed to admit that I remain connected to the wonder and delight of my youth. Especially at Christmas we should strive to do so—entering the blessed season as a little child. To own tangible elements of days long gone captivates my present heart with pause.

And, in pausing . . . the power of renewal is within my grasp.

Raggedy Ann was given to me in Christmas 1961. Forty-plus years later, she still wears her original clothes. Placing her under my vintage Christmas tree, thoughts of our history together return. I remember the crisp frost of fall when I lost her . . .

Raggedy

I’m GUEST POSTING this week at Pausing to See God Clearly for my friend, Jeanne Doyon. She’s hosting gracious words from a treasure-trove of devotional writers in a special series this month titled, Treasure the Quiet Moments. I am honored to be counted among the participants with this whimsical inspiration and devotional rumination story of a Christmas past.
