It's Christmas Card Day at my house today! I started making cards a few days ago...worked (with an unusual amount of diligence) at the crop Friday evening and finished up today. And I used items I had on hand, instead of buying more...that's an accomplishment in itself! I got over the need to have them be exactly alike and made 6 sets of 6 designs. I sometimes forget how much I love making cards!
I found the sentiment on the liner notes of this Christmas CD made by some musicians at church. It's called "Your King has Come!" and I love it! (www.detunedradio.com) It's a little bit traditional and little bit folk...
The righteous has come for the unrighteous.
The innocent has come for the guilty.
The Son of God has come to gather a people unto Himself
From every race, tribe and tongue.
The doors of heaven are open and inside it looks like an ordinary stable with a tiny baby inside.
Let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord.
We also got the tree up today and enjoyed decorating. It was a great day!
