Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

Christmas is coming…. December 1, 2008

Filed under: Holidays — Andie @ 10:06 pm

Hello all, 

We’re going to be talking about Christmas traditions this week and what we’ve done to uniquely celebrate Christmas in our homes. 

Andrew and I really like photography and so a few years ago, I decided to incorporate photography into our Christmas decorations. First, I chose different word pictures that Jesus is called and found verses to correspond. Some of these images are: bread of life, cornerstone, door, lion, lamb, shepherd, sunrise, king, and light to name a few. 

Then, after finding these images and the corresponding verses, I purchased photos from istockphoto and attached them to card stock. I wrote the verses on the back of the pictures and we hang them on the wall (attached to twine with clothespins for a simple look) and talk about them with Ruth throughout the Christmas season. Last year she had her favorites and so we read those repeatedly (and memorized a verse in the process!). 

Photos coming tomorrow…..
