Words to live by: Matthew 2:4-7 So Joseph also went up for the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pleaded to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. God controls all history. By the decree of Emperor Augustus, Jesus was born in there very town prophesied for his birth (Micah 5:2) even though his parents did not live there.
Can you imagine what that must have been like? To give birth in stable? (After riding for days on the back of donkey.)
Here we are just a week away for Christmas. I just love this time of year. I’m not gonna lie. I love the lights, decorations, cookies and carols! Can’t get enough.
The days are getting shorter and wreaking havoc on decent lighting for my outfit photos. I decided to go ahead share them anyway!
It’s funny how I sometimes come up with outfit inspiration. A teacher that I work with wore plum colored pants with leopard flats and a grey jacket. She also had a darling statement necklace that pulled the look together. I thought well, I have the pants and shoes…..Since I don’t have a necklace that would work with this look, I went with a scarf. I never would have put this lavender top with these pants but the colors in the scarf seemed to pull it together. I have a grey jacket, but am more comfortable in a sweater. So I guess I began in one direction, swerved into different lane, but am happy with where I ended up!
And in the lighting department, this is the worst of the worst! It’s pretty bad, but at least you can see I tried!
As we approach this last weekend before Christmas, I hope you take the time to breathe it all in. Taste it, savor it and hug those close to you. And take a moment to remember Mary, and her part in bringing Jesus to us.
Merry Christmas, dear ones!
