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?

Bee Across the Sea: December Santa

Anita and I finished our Bee stitching for December! I still need to add borders to my hanging, but the embroidery and applique are done. It will be fun to use these banners in the coming years.

Anita's border of different colored square of fabric, plus the realistic beard, make her Santa wall hanging a work of art. I love it!
