HE does the decorating this time.....

And blessed be His glorious name forever;
And may the whole earth be filled with His glory
Amen and Amen.  Psalm 72:19

However, GOD does the decorating for of the pine trees to celebrate the glorious RESURRECTION of His Son!!!

Just in time for Easter the pine trees pay homage to the AWESOME SACRIFICE and VICTORY over death by symbolizing Christ's Crucifixion with new growth.  

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  ~ I Peter 1:3
Blessed Resurrection, everyone!
