CHRISTMAS WELCOME

In our entrance hall, this nativity scene greets visitors.

CHRISTMAS NATIVITY

Christmas is more than a day at the end of the year

More than a day of joy and good cheer.

holy fmly

Christmas is really God’s pattern for living

To be followed each day by unselfish giving.

Laurie, this is a beautiful post! If you have time, send me an update on Dylan. You have been in my thoughts since reading about his birth.

Laurie, I love your Nativity Scenes and I noticed the open Bible on a stand by this one. Odd, but I've never thought of that but will see if I can do one by at least one of mine as it really does complete it. I hope things are going well with the granddaughters there and that their little brother continues to gain weight and strength every day. You take care too.
