For Unto Us...

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savoir has been born to you: he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

~Luke 2:10-14
Merry Christmas to all!

New Christmas Stockings

Yesterday at the thrift store I found a canvas shower curtain (which was purchased for another project, more on that later) that I knew I needed. After getting home I kept having visions of Christmas stockings... I didn't like my dollar store stockings from a few years ago!! :) So after a few hours of trying to resist the stocking visions, I succumbed to the whimsy of whipping up a few. I used the canvas and traced out the stockings. Then decided to dress them up with a little Christmas cheer. I drew little embellishments out with pencil (so it would wash away). I did four designs because that is all that are left at home. Here they are...

A Christmas tree in a pot.
A fluffy snowman!

A cute little raindeer!

And last but not least, a Christmas Wreath!

For now (mostly to get a picture) they hang on my book case.

Simple Wisdom

"I mean that sometimes, at first reading, the Bible does seem like a jumble of unrelated writings, especially to an unbeliever. But if you believe it is the Word of God, and so have patience to go on and learn how to divide it and put it together, you soon see that each part fits into the rest without discord or contradiction and the whole presents a perfect portrait."
