Happy Birthday Jesus

Luke 2:6-7
The Birth of
6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


Matthew 1:18-25
The Birth of Jesus

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."

22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"—which means, "God with us."

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
Happy Birthday Jesus
Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christmas Home Tour

Knock.Knock. Well who could that be? Knock.Knock. Well come on in I didn't know a soul was on the place. Welcome to my 1st Christmas Open House with BooMama..Have a seat and set awhile. I will put on a pot of Hazelnut Mocha flavored coffee. I hope you enjoy the tour....

This is my Christmas tree in the living room.
This is my Snowman collection. I have been collecting snowmen for several years...My mom made this snowman runner. She appliqued the snowmen and then did a stipple effect similar to hand quilting. This is one of the ornaments that I made this season. These are the beginning of a "W" wall.
This arrangement stays out all year long on my dining room table. It blends really well with my Christmas things.
Here's the big tree in our den, it's decorated with all my snowmen ornaments, kids ornaments (they get a new one every year) Lots of red and homespun touches to it.

Merry Christmas from the The Williams Klan
