dec. daily {no. 4} Light of the world

"And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid."

The best+brightest item on our advent agenda: Cozy up on the couch and read Luke chapter 2 family style. Pause to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

It's no Bethlehem star, but this lovely little chandie is gracing our dining room table and illuminating our nativity scene this season. An early Christmas gift from my sil--she knows my girly style all too well.

P.S. If you're feeling a bit behind the times these days and still in need of a quick advent calendar--download this one. It's simple and darling!

Willow Tree nativity just like mine! You are one lucky family though, I only have the main characters but would love all the others especially the three kings.

yea for the chandelier and the willow tree nativity. We surprised my mom with the whole set for Christmas one year and it is so lovely.

Luke 2 is quite wonderful as well. Been one of my favorite parts of the Bible for many years. Have you ever read the book Two From Galilee by Marjorie Holmes? I highly recommend it.
