I’ve been noticing a lot of folks preparing for the Christmas Holidays now that Thanksgiving has come and gone… #Christmas is now trending people 😉 Lots of beautiful Christmas lights and Festively lit trees are all over Facebook! It definitely gave me the itch to do a little something in my house!
On my way home from playing some fun board games at my sister’s house last night, I was listening to the great broadcast’s that are always airing on Sunday Evening’s on 96.9 KSBJ… I just love me some Christian Talk Radio. So… they were chatting about Christmas decorations and I though “Oh how apropos! I just put out my décor today!!” … they talked about remembering the true reason for the Season (which is the birth of our wonderful Savior Jesus Christ)… I felt kinda bad that I had almost nothing to represent this in my home! #ineedanativity
Yes I have Angels… and after a few moments of thought… that’s basically it in the décor section…
I have my Bible and various devotionals set out for my quiet time study… but no nativity… no crosses… no pictures of Jesus… no north star or biblical scriptures to commemorate His life and the reason I have this glorious Holy-day to celebrate.
What I do have you can see represented in the pictures here. My home was a complete blessing provided only by God. I am thankful for the grace and mercy He shows me everyday, and I feel grateful for the moments in the car last night when He reminded me that my home is one of many places He has given me to exude the light He has placed in me. The light is a place for people to come in and See Him. I pray that I can show people exactly that!
“The Lord our God, the Lord is one.5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” -Deuteronomy 6: 4-9
On the radio last night they were speaking of decorating your home in Christ and using those decorations to remember the true meaning for the season, Jesus… Tell you kids, friends, family, mail-service, strangers, share it with everyone!
They referenced Ever Thine Home for a set of “Adorenaments”…
“Use your tree to enrich your family spiritually! Adorenaments® is about more than just beautiful ornaments. Every set includes a booklet of mini-devotions to help you connect with your family and teach them the significance of each of the names of Jesus from Scripture.”
I think this is a pretty awesome way to celebrate Christ during Christmas ;)… they have all kinds of stuff for the home on their site! Some of their stuff would fit perfectly in my home 🙂 Especially the “everyday” collection!
What do you guys think? I’m excited to be reminded of the gift of Salvation God provides for us! Have you accepted gift of Jesus Christ?
I have 🙂 and it’s the Best Gift this girl’s ever gotten!
