This is our first Christmas living in the new house so it was fun
to start going through the decorations over the weekend and
figuring out what will work since this house is so different from the last one.
The first thing I chose to set up was my favorite nativity... and the
moment I placed Baby Jesus in the manger I knew it was beginning to look
a lot like Christmas because it really is all about Him. His birth...
His life... and why He came... He truly is the Reason for the Season!
There are so many things about Christmas that I love...
the sounds, the smells, the beauty of it all!
But it's the loving, giving, caring and sharing that makes
Christmas the most beautiful holiday of all!
I look forward, over the next 27 days, to sharing some of the sights,
smells, sounds, and symbolism of the season with you
so that together we will be encouraged to celebrate this season...
in His love and for His glory!
So how about you... do you own a nativity? Have you set it out yet?
I love the tradition of not putting Jesus in the manger until Christmas
morning. Do you do that? Hmmm... now that I said that...
I think my Baby Jesus just might disappear for the next 27 days!
Love and Christmas hugs to you...
