Of course, decorative win- dows and such may make a difference in how things balance visually. But a wreath is like a painting, it's meant to be seen.

Illll II Panorama By Fawna Barrett i iiiii ii i i | Merry Christmas[ Yes, the biggest day for young and old is here. Weeks of planning, cooking, making, shop- ping, wrapping, eating, partying is be- ing culminated today. Cars are fueled; packages and fam- ily fill the inside of the vehicles as they head for family gatherings. For some the trip may involve flying, riding a train or even a bus to reach this most important event of the family calendar. Excitement simply bubbles over! For many people, Christmas Eve services are vital to the celebration and so special when family attends together. With all the hustle and bustle com- ing to an end, take time to look around and remember neighbors, who might not have family to share the holiday. Remember shut-ins who cannot attend programs and church services. Take a few minutes to call at the nursing home in your area to speak and smile at the residents, whether you know them or not. And most of all, thank God for the gift of His Son, Jesus, our Creator and Redeemer!
