Christmas countdown

Good morning!! I thought it was about time I got back into my blogging properly.. and so here I am... doing a sort of 12 days of Christmas thing ... In these days leading up to Christmas I will be sharing a Christmas carol each day as I wanted to make these posts focused on what I think the true meaning of Christmas is. 

It's pretty supernatural really... Christ Jesus being born. God become Man - born as a baby. Such a wonderful humble thing it was he did coming to earth - the long awaited Messiah (KING)!! Here's the first carol....



Joy to the World

Joy to The world! the Lord has come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns

Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy

He rules the world with truth and grace

And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonder wonders of His love

I will also attempt to share a Creation as well as have a little giveaway... So ...

Here's a card I made using one of the nativity images from Mad for Markers

Just had to see the other days of Christmas. That is a beautiful image and so wonderfully coloured Sammi. Perfect sentiment too. Christmas to me - is fun, surprises, family, smiles, making people feel special and of course food. :-)
