“And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
As I was working on setting the table yesterday, my heart was filled with joy and gratitude as I thought about each one who would be sitting around our table. A few family members will be missing because they will be at their other family’s tables!
Christmas is not about presents, parties, or even making your home festive!
No, it’s not even about the traditions we treasure.
The heart of Christmas is this: the Christ child, born over 2000 years ago. Completely human and completely divine.
Humble and holy.
Baby and King.
The one that holds all things together.
And we must all answer the most important question of life…the one that all of eternity hinges on…Will you follow Him?
Will you make Him Lord and Savior of your life?
May this truly be the “most wonderful time of the year” as you purpose in your heart to keep Jesus in his rightful place…He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Shimmering tartan plaid tablecloth with gold threads running through gives an elegance to our table set for Christmas dinner! I have used the deer place card holders on a couple of our holiday tablescapes, but they are my favorite! I just love Christmas china…the Fitz and Floyd remains a favorite! I am so thankful to still have my 85 year old Daddy who has a sharp mind and wit! My heart overflows when putting his place card opposite Butch at the end of the table! The centerpiece is made of several elements! I enjoy mixing it up, using natural with a little bling! A pair of hurricane containers hold fresh mandarin oranges. I love the unexpected pop of orange with the traditional red and green!
A Santa cookie jar is at the center! I placed four cones of faux glittered tulips with fresh cut pine filling in the centerpiece!
Bisque votives provide ambiance! A pair of gold deer grace the table!
