|Our manger scene|
Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15 (NKJV)
“But this is my favorite Christmas decoration of all,” she wrote about her manger scene.
A tiny figure of baby Jesus surrounded by figurines of Mary, Joseph, shepherds, and magi represent the greatest story ever told.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11 (KJV)
We also like to decorate with evergreen trees and wreaths . To me, the evergreen represents eternal life. (John 11:25-26)
And all the beautiful lights, to dispel the darkness, like Jesus does, and as he asks us to do.
Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
Indeed, Jesus is the best gift of all, the reason we decorate and celebrate His birth. I hope these symbols and decorations will bring joy to you and your family this holiday season and remind you of God’s promises.
