THE GIFT IS GIVEN!!

This is the season in which
we celebrate the greatest Gift
in Christendom!
While we celebrate the birth of 
The Christ Child
This is only the beginning.
The Sacrifice is not complete
 The Promise is not yet fulfilled
 While we celebrate and make merry
 We must remember in the distance
 A shadow looms
It is more than three decades 
In the future.
Til the fulfillment of God's 
Gift To Mankind

When I display this beautiful Boehm Nativity I feel compelled to also display this beautiful crystal Cross.
I never want to get so caught up in the beauty and sweet spirit of the Nativity
that I forget the promise given on that
"First Christmas"
was fulfilled on
"Calvary"

I pray our Lord's richest blessings for you, your loved ones and friends during this Holiest of Seasons.

Savannah Granny, Ginger

Lovely post, I am so enjoying seeing how everyone celebrates this special time of the year.

I love your nativity scene
and the crystal cross too.

Sadly the true meaning of Christmas seems to have disappeared among all the rush and madness to socialise.

It is a special time and people should remember why.

Wishing you and family well.

Amen! Beautiful and so true!

Beautiful nativity, Ginger! And beautifully worded post. I love the white figures with your blue satin... You know something? I'd love to see your nativity set all in black, with a white satin... wouldn't that look fabulous too? Wish I could find something like that. Anyway, your set is lovely. And I saw the first comment you got: Congrats on your win!!!!!!!!!
Best,
Gloria

I pray the same for you, my sweet bloggy friend. This is a wonderful reminder of what Christmas is all about no matter how hard "the world" tries to say it isn't!

"The first Christmas was fulfilled on Calvary" Love it. I'm your newest follower and would love you to drop by sometime.

So true and beautifully written. So many people see Him as just a baby in a manger. I love how your scene tells the whole story.
