This is an ornament I recieved this year from my friend Jeanne; it’s beautifully done, and sums up my feelings around Christmastime: JOY. The tree lit up in the evening is just so pretty… give me a cup of coffee by my side, a bit of needlework, and a bright Christmas tree & I may as well be in Heaven. And it always seems to me that in the week leading up to Christmas day is so full of anticipation, hope, & promise!
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
