Remembering a Loved One at Christmas

      I've had this idea bouncing around in my head for awhile and I finally sat down to do it.

It's a jar to memorialize my mother-in-law. She passed a way a year ago last October after a short battle with kidney cancer.
I plan to place this on our fireplace hearth so we can include her memory in our Christmas celebration.
It's actually one vase placed inside a larger vase. I used artificial holly berries to hold up the battery powered candlestick in the center vase. Then in the larger vase, I placed red beads at the bottom and filled the rest of it with sticks and green leaves (from the holly berries). 

Here's a back view.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14
