Merry Christmas Dear Friends!!!  I can't believe after all this preparation and busyness, Christmas is here tomorrow!! May God bless you with a wonderful and blessed Christmas as you celebrate our Savior's birth!!

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. — Luke 2:6-7

Jesus entered our world in the most normal of ways for a child: the time came, his mother gave birth, he was wrapped in soft cloth, and placed in a crib. Only this was the Son of God who was born. His crib was a corncrib where animals ate, not a baby's crib. His room was a stable because there was no room for him. It wasn't just normal; it was common, even below average conditions for his birth. Can you imagine? The Holy God who created everything enters our world as a baby to share our way of life as one of us. Why? He loves us and wants us to come home to him. Incredible! Incredible story. Incredible love. Incredible God! What Amazing Grace!!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, Canning Jars, Canning Jar Fillers, Holly Wreath, Chris OlsenIn addition to Christmas wishes, I would like to share my last Christmas creation of the season!!  I have incorporated the Shining the Light at ODBD challange which is anything goes with Our Daily Bread Designs.
