Blue Monday

Hello Dear Ones and welcome to Blue Monday created and hosted by our Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/. Make sure you visit Sally today and you'll see lots of Blue!
I was out poodling around and went into Hobby Lobby and saw this almost life sized Nativity hanging on the wall! I thought it was so very beautiful and asked the cashier if I could take a picture! The background is a dark blue felt and there is lots of blue in the clothing! I wanted to share this scene with you because this is what Christmas is really all about - Jesus' birth! The true meaning of the season! Happy Blue Monday!

*************************************
Well, on the note of spiritual things...I'm very busy in my church and among other things, I'm the editor of our monthly church newsletter. I'll bet you think I use sweetness and precious all over our newsletter, don't you? I really don't do that! :) Well, I was copying, printing and putting the newsletter together and went to the ladies' room. A small blue light blue bulb went off in my tiny head and I thought "Beauty Snapping!" You know I use every opportunity possible to snap - so I snapped for Jesus! Yep, right here in my church's ladies' room I snapped! I certainly hope I haven't offended anyone. You see, I know God very well and His son, Jesus, is a very good friend of mine! He loves my silliness! I hope you do too!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Happy Birthday, Jesus
Happy Birthday, Jesus
I'm so glad it's Christmas
All the tinsel and lights
And the presents are nice
But the real gift is you
Happy Birthday Jesus
I'm so glad it's Chrsitmas
All the carols and bells
Make the holiday swell
And it's all about You
Happy Birthdy Jesus
Jesus, I love You.
~sung by The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir

  11. Snapping for Jesus? Yep, you are for sure one of his most gracious ambassadors.

    The folks at Hobby Lobby did a very nice job of displaying the Nativity. You can tell lots of care and respect went into it.

  24. The truth that God has a sense of humor is proven by the fact that he even created man.
    So glad you were permitted to photograph the wall hanging. It certainly looks three dimensional. Very beautiful.

  25. The Nativity is so lovely, as are you. Happy Blue Monday and have a great week.

  26. Shelia, I'm almost positive that your guardian angel flies up to Heaven at the end of a busy day watching over you, shakes his/her head, and says to the other angels "You won't BELIEVE what she did today!!"

    Your posts always leave me with a smile on my face! That nativity is absolutely beautiful! You are so kind to share it with us!

  27. Is 'poodling' a real word? - I love it!! I always enjoy the music they play at Hobby Lobby - you really have to listen close - it is usually one of my favorite hymns. The Nativity is beautiful. Sally

  31. Sheila, yes we love your sillies too! You're a fun lady & I'm sure your church people just love you. Glad you tried out the pic enlarging and yes, I did mention that it only works well on vertical pics & the others would be cut off. Now, YOU be a sweetie!

  32. Shelia I dont think you are blessed with silliness but that you are just a beautiful person inside and out. You are joyful.

    Love your header on your blog, the nativity scene, your music and the little snowdrops and that bathroom picture wow! Perfect for the Christmas season - given your location.

    I bet your newsletter is great too! Have a great day, I love coming here for a dose of your sunshine!!

  33. I just love the Nativity with the blue background-glad you were able to get a picture. And how fitting that the Bathroom Diva would take the opportunity to add another snapshot to her resume--a real day brightener--thanks!

  34. Your silliness is a great thing....we share that same "gene"!
    The Nativity Scene is just gorgeous and I love the detail. On Saturday I went to a live Nativity Scene at a church in the Heights and it was so wonderful to watch the REAL Christmas story.

    PS: Love that song...and I can always imagine the sweet little children singing that tune!

    Beautiful Nativity! Love HL! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

  37. Shelia,
    I'll bet if Jesus had a desk he'd put that picture in a frame and set it on his desk to make his day an even happier one ;)

    Beautiful Nativity scene!

  41. Hello Sheila, that is a lovely nativity scene! I guess I should explain about the Tablescape Tuesday post I did on Sunday. I have yet to figure out how to do a time delay on the posts and since I'm out of town now, I had to do it Sunday. I wrote that my readers should visit Susan on "Tuesday." I just can't figure out everything about this blogging stuff quick enough.

  44. Sheila, I tried that "post options" thing--changing the date on a test on Sunday and it didn't work. I guess I have to try again. I'm always in a hurry with these things and guess I need to schedule a day just to figure out stuff like this...Thank you for the information:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, I do...I do love your silliness and you know why?? Cause your good friend and mine, JESUS CHRIST, gave you the cutest personality in the world...and I am thankful for it...
    and, you can't fool ME...I know...JUST KNOW, that if I could get ahold of one of those church bulletins, i could find at least one "PRECIOUS" in it...somewhere!
    love, bj
