twelve days of christmas: day eleven.


Happy Christmas!


Ava and I had time on Monday to make some last minute ornaments for the tree! They turned out wonderful and all we needed was air dry clay! (We used the Crayola brand). 
It was super easy and a whole lot of fun too!


I am so happy; my heart is filled with joy. I cannot contain it!
I am so thankful for all of the blessings in my life. God is so good, even when it seems like things are taking a turn for the worst, He is still God. He is still good. 

Luke 2:8-20
"Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And behold,[b] an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”[c]
 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.  Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.  And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them."


The greatest gift of all was given from Heaven and we celebrate it today. I pray that you and your family are truly blessed and you see past all the bows, candy canes, and gifts. That the fighting and bickering cease. That you all truly show each other love and appreciation and you remember the sacrificial gift that God sent us in a manger so long ago. Glory to God in the HIghest! Peace on Earth!
