I try to make Jesus the focus of Christmas.
And I had the urge to play with my mixed media stuff.
So I got out my vintage prints, some glue, some paint.
Scissors, brushes, the works.
While listening to Christmas music, and singing loudly along (in the privacy of my sewing room, I might add), these two pictures came to be. These pictures make me smile. I love the Chrismtas season. I love the lights, the music., the traditions (of thinking of others, and not ourselves). I love the Christ-centered focus.
I am grateful that we have one season every year where we dedicate ourselves to being more Christlike. Being more like Jesus who lived every day in order to serve the people around Him. He dedicated his life to us. In the service of us He lived and died.
Christmas is a good time to remind ourselves to be more like Him. We should be like Him year-round, but I believe that Christmas is a great reminder.
I hope all of you have a fabulous Christmas.
May the spirit of the Christchild bring you peace and love now and throughout the new year.
