My oldest daughter, on her own initiative, updated our kitchen markerboard for us - with candy canes, Christmas trees, a list of Christmas-related events this coming week, and these two verses:
And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people from their sins.
And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room for them in the inn.
This weekend, we'll probably (finally) get our Christmas tree up; but for now, we're feeling festive (and reverent and grateful) having these out ...
The glass nativity scene from the thrift store, on my Christmas mini-quilt ...
And, my personal favorite, the cross-stitched nativity scene that my sister made for us ...
I hope that you and yours are having a memorable time getting ready for Christmas! Have a great weekend!
