The Reason For the Season Party

Hello everyone~ I am joining Lynn @ Happier Than A Pig In Mud for her Reason For The Season Party.

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! It's pretty decorations and festive food, gift giving and joyous times with family and friends. But it's so much more than that!
"For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger." ~ Luke 2: 11-12

If not for Jesus Christ coming to earth as a Babe we would not be celebrating this wonderful season at all. So, here is my Reason For the Season Nativity.
A gentleman at our last church made the stable for me. The figurines which date from 1981-1989, are from Avon and they are all gifts from family and friends. Made of porcelain, they are lovely and they fit into the stable perfectly. This is the opening in my china cabinet which I had designed myself to display my Nativity.

Thank you for visiting and please join Lynn http://happierthanapiginmud.blogspot.com/
and her participants for this lovely party.

Jesus is the Reason For the Season! Merry Christmas everyone!
My Tea Time Tuesday party is below this post.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

Hi Sandi~ so nice to be visiting at your blog again. I shut down my one blog and started a new one and lost track of you. ~But happy to be visiting with you again. That is a very nice Nativity. I would like to get one. My husbands grandmother had given me one and it went missing in one of our moves. I was so sad to have lost it. I have been looking at antique stores for a new to me(old)one but have not found one yet. ~Merry Christmas ~Love Heather
