As You Enter My Home You Will SEE.....

 ......Mary and Baby Jesus

During the Christmas season I like to keep my entry hall peaceful.

After all it is the birth of Christ, the greatest gift of LOVE mankind has ever received, that we are celebrating.  

We can get so caught up in the decorating and gift buying we often forget about the meaning behind Christmas.

I want all who enter our home to know that  we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ

Yesterday I brought out Mary, and baby Jesus, and placed them in their usual spot.

I had a large ceramic jug with branches from Thanksgiving that I wanted to use.

By placing all white ornaments, and silver pinecones on the branches I kept the peaceful look.

I kept it simple by adding one large white pillar candle.

I am wishing you all a blessed Christmas where you will feel peace and love in your homes.
