The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 1

Sarah came up with a great Christmas challenge for the twelve days between now and the 25th!

Today is twelve favorite Christmas pictures...

I love this picture of Mary and Jesus - so lovely!

A beautiful depiction of the Holy Family and a bit from Isaiah - it's so amazing how all the prophecies came true in Jesus!

Love the stars in this one.

A Charlie Brown Christmas!  Charlie Brown is so happy, even if Snoopy is into the commercialism of Christmas and the boy has only a small tree.  But that tree, with a little love...

Can turn into this!  Rather magical, don't you think?  The branches multiplied...  And everyone is singing!

A bit of fun...

And a Fellowship of the Ring comic I drew last year!  My drawing skills aren't great, but it was fun.  It will likely only make sense to those who have read the book.

A couple years ago we got to visit some really cool churches around Christmas, and this one had some beautiful decorations that complimented the already beautiful interior.

A staircase to the choir loft and pipe organ, I believe...

And the decorations under a stained glass window.  This is one of my favorites.

These three wise men are part of a nativity set we own.  We usually keep them to the east of the rest of the set until Epiphany.  But you know, you don't have to be wise and wealthy to come to Jesus - he invites us all, old and young, rich and poor, and all this guy.

That's all for the first day!  Say a quick prayer for me if you will - I have my Spanish final either tomorrow or Friday, and I'm nervous!  Looking forward to being done with the course though.  See you all tomorrow, and may the Lord be with you!
