Her Aisle from the series: A Visit With My Grandmother

Before we left, we were given access to the church sanctuary.  I listened to my Grandmother talk about how she decorated the sanctuary for her December wedding to my Grandaddy.  She wanted to bring the winter forest inside and to grace the room with the smell of pine.  Her daddy said that was a foolish and messy idea and that he would not help her.  So, she cut the limbs from the trees, hauled them inside and decorated herself.
