“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
Warm greetings sweet friends! Can you believe that in just one week Christmas will be here…wasn’t it just summer? The week before Christmas last year, I received a gift that totally took me me by surprise that I am sharing with you all today. The lovely Pat from Life at Lydia’s House gifted me with her own designed Christmas dinnerware “Bethlehem Christmas”…and you talk about a lovely gift! There are 8 different designs that share the birth of Jesus according to the scriptures. I was so excited to use it for our family’s Christmas dinner last year and it will be making its second appearance this year! Last year, we took turns going around the table reading the scripture from our plate. It was a beautiful way to share the true gift of Christmas-Jesus!
You are probably aware of our love for music, so as you gather around our table, I’ve asked Butch to share a song with you that he wrote a few years ago. Even though there is no audio, we pray the lyrics will “caption” Jesus and the reality of the Christ child!
A gift of love all wrapped in grace, His Spirit is His seal
With ribbons of joy and hope, For whosoever will!
In a manger in Bethlehem; there lies a stranger in a foreign land.
Heaven’s joy in a manger makes my heart sing.
Holy love in a manger, Christ the King!
