Busy Bees Across the Seas!

One of my projects this year is Randje per Week.

Anita and I are continuing are monthly virtual sewing Bees this year, trading photos of our projects each Friday or so. This year we'll be concentrating on Advent tree ornaments and English paper-pieced stars. But we'll be working on our own projects, too! Here are some results for January!

Beautiful applique work by Anita!

Happy Christmas - Christ is born! Glorify Him!

The Birth of Christ

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him!
The wise men journey with a star!
Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!

Merry Christmas! Christ is Born!

After all the gifts are unwrapped and the Christmas breakfast eaten, take some time to worship God, who sent His Son into the world so we could have a relationship with Him.

Did you know....

  • Jesus was born in a cave? Caves were used as stables. There was no wooden structure.
  • Midwive(s) attended his birth?
  • The wise men arrived several days or weeks after Christ's birth?
  • Joseph was a widower, possibly 80 years old, with grown children from a previous marriage?
  • Mary might have been as young as 14 years old and was brought up and educated in the temple to serve God?
