Celebrating Christmas

Nativity my mother painted (Dad cut the figures out of wood)


So glad you were born! Can't imagine what my life would be like without you - don't want to imagine it. 

Made a cake for you today . . . 

One red layer for the blood you shed for us on the cross as you stepped in to take the punishment for our sins . . .

One green layer for the eternal life we can have because of what you've done for us . . .

Yellow icing for the birthday of the Son of Righteousness

A white taper candle in the center representing you as the light of the world. Candles around the edge of the cake for each member of our family with you at the center . . . our lives revolving around yours. We lit our candles with yours because it's your light that shines in each of us.

Had fun celebrating your birth at home in our new jammies!

Love you Lord Jesus!!!

So very thankful to God for sending you to us!

Merry Christmas!


The cute cake idea in this post came from Lisa Whelchel's book, The Adventure of Christmas. You can find it here:
