Christmas Eve


Happy Christmas Eve! I hope you are having a wonderfully lovely day and wish many blessings upon you :)
I just can't stop thinking around this time what an amazing night that must have been so many years ago when Jesus was born (even though I know this is not the real date of His birth...bear with me). The picture the Bible paints is so vivid and lovely. The wise men that traveled so far to worship the new baby, the poor shepherds who may have lived alone their whole lives-but got to be witness to the greatest even in history. It is purely magical. 

Luke 2:11-14
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Oh, go ahead-just read all of Luke chapters 1 and 2. You won't regret it :)

  



 

Because Christmas has truly descended upon us I had to take my last opportunity to pair red and green together. In a few days that will no longer be acceptable! Also since it was 7 degrees out when I wore this outfit, I had to put on my giant parka. I just recently bought this coat because I've been living in denial for several years about the fact that it gets absurdly cold in the wintertime. Now that I have to stand outside with my kids for recess I decided that I needed an actual warm coat. This one fit the bill!
