We received a few ornaments in the mail. We opened them Christmas Morning.
GOD BLESS THE USA
Our friend Sue from Indiana sent these ornaments...she works with vinyl stencils.
She also sent this little donkey. Thanks Sue!
The Legend of the Donkey
God used a little donkey to carry Mary to Bethlehem, where Jesus would be born. Many years later a donkey would carry Jesus to Jerusalem, where He would die upon the cross. God marked the donkey's back with a cross. It is a reminder of God's Son Jesus, who was born and died for all.
This year our ornaments were hung on the fireplace mantle where our children and grands stockings usually hang. We were just not feeling like putting up a tree...maybe next year.
I did take the Santas down from the wreath by the door. Time to redecorate it with snowmen.
I have not made a list of things I want to accomplish...yet.
