Lest I be thought of as a heathen (smile) I thought I should show some of my many nativities. Totally acknowledging that Jesus is the reason for the season!
The three-dimensional plate I bought at one of those "home parties" in the '90s. They were called Christmas around the World (House of Lloyd) - and for obvious reasons, they were always in and around Christmas. The big star at the top has a light on it.
We place them all on one bookcase. I'm showcasing just three -
Another three-dimensional tree and nativity. (I love trees) This was given to me by a friend who has since passed on - She was a Sufi Muslim born and raised in Turkey. She converted to Judaism and years later converted to Christianity.
Sufism, the mystical tradition of Islam, can be found in both the Shiite and Sunni communities.
I like to collect unique nativities - this one is my straw nativity - I've had this for 40 years.
Today was the last day, of this bible study at church.
An interesting study on the 1st and 2nd Kings. I really enjoyed it.
Throughout the study book, they have little perforated note card cut-outs - to place on a mirror or maybe to frame
I'll eventually do something crafty with them -
The leader gave us all these 3-minute devotional books that are so pretty.
My favorite colors.
To keep us busy until we start back in Feb. studying JOY in Philippians.
Sometimes these devotions are so pretty I hate to write in them.
After a few days of cold temps and no sun, today is bright and sunny and 56. I noticed that our Fall trees are just about done showing off and many are dropping their leaves. I like all the leaves in the streets - walking through them.
I was gone from 9am to 2pm. I had another meeting to go to and then had to go to the store - Tuesdays are my busiest day of the week.
That's all I have for today - I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the season.
