A Christmas Portrait

to Remember Precious Truth

Christmas Symbolism with Scriptural References
The Holy Bible, King James Version

by Linda Dilworth Washburn

Having little regard for Santa Claus throughout motherhood,
I was taken aback when San
ta paid me a visit!
This grand Ole’ Soul taught CHRISTMAS PORTRAITS:
symbolism generating spontaneous lessons of faith
in Christ and God’s love, and their plan for happiness!
Now, even more undeniable in my opinion,
Santa and his entourage have been the most significant symbols,
created by forefathers to help us

is a parable for each person’s lifetime
wherein personal PEACE is to be experienced ON EARTH,
and throughout all eternity, lest we forget!

Read my tale!
You’ll be so glad you did
CHRISTMAS MAGICheartfelt truth,
sets aglow in you!

A Christmas Portrait

to Remember Precious Truth

“Pagans once used Tannenbaum firs to worship winter solstice.
However, just as Christ surmounts sin,
early Christians overcame Pagan custom by rejoicing in Jesus.
They placed ITEMS on the TREE that were reminders of Him.”

“Being the most fundamental of Christmas traditions,
the CHRISTMAS TREE reflects Christs central role in the gospel.
An all-powerful Christ provides incalculable needs and miracles!
However, he does so with all glory to God, the Father.
The dynamic, towering
gives beauty, shelter, comfort, and life-giving oxygen
while redirecting our thoughts upward to God
by pointing its needles and tapered top toward Heaven!”

displays keeping our roots in the gospels fertile ground.

the TREE exemplifies Christs power overcoming Satan.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
. . .and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

[Ephesians 3:17-19]

“Being axed at the roots to be thrown in the fire [Matthew 3:10],
-OFF TREES demonstrate the consequence of choosing wrong.
ROCK in the tree base and LIGHTING the SAWED-OFF TREE
remind of Christs loving help as we repent.
Teach the children to take hold of the PLUG, use an EXTENSION if needed,
and tap into Christs power, repenting with unwavering faith,
that their light may shine and they may see,
finding a fullness of
He has power over Satan, and so do we in Christ’s name.”
[Luke 10:17-20]

“Like God’s will through all dispensations of changing times,
BOUGHS, except for growth, year to year,
express Christ’s gospel of love branching worldwide.
The NEEDLES portray disciples,
dependent upon Christ, the TRUNK.
Many fall, losing hold of the gospels iron rod, BRANCHES.”

“Aloft in its setting, the STAR tells again
of Heavenly Fathers love by his promise kept!” 
                             Once again in symbol,
the STAR locates Christ. . . . . . . . . . . . . .                                                  but this time sustaining His disciples.” . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..

“As if at Christ’s feet,
a GIFT displays remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ.
It is a token sacrifice offering peace and joy to another,
but CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS are done without ritual.
We do not worship with Christmas symbols.
They are
visual reminders to help us remember;
lest we forget!”  we 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     “God’s plan of happiness is often mocked and forgotten,
but it is decency that builds strong self-esteem, families, and nations!
Originated to help remember life’s TRUTH and PURPOSE,

is a parable for enriched lifetimes through Christ
while on earth and throughout eternity;
lest we forget!”

“Personal WALLS need immoveable righteous building blocks or bricks,
even when not putting trust in Christ to find happiness!”

He that hath no rule over his own spirit
is like a city that is broken down and without walls.

[Proverbs 25:28]

staying as far as possible from the line
between RIGHT and WRONG
Wrong is wrong and creates trouble, even if everyone is doing it!

Right is right
and creates safety, even if no one is doing it!”
