O, Come Let Us Adore Him

Hello, Dear Ones!
Still doing a little Christmasing around my house. 
Come on into the den and I'll show you what's on my drop leaf Duncan Phyfe table.

 I love this time of year, don't you?
 I chose to put one of my Nativities here. I had given this set to my Mother and Daddy many years ago. When she downsized here to Galveston, she asked me if I'd like to have it.
She did not have to ask me twice! :) Now that both my parents have gone to heaven I will even cherish it more.
 I filled a couple of cloches with Christmas balls and tossed down some beaded garlands.
 Added a few greens and I called it Christmased!

 O, Come Let Us Adore Him!
 As much fun as it is making our homes look so pretty and festive for this time of year, let's not forget the  reason why we celebrate ~ Jesus Christ!

 Have a blessed Christmas season.
Oh, and keep showing me your pretty decorating! I'm lovin' it! :)

I'm joining Cozy Little House for Tweak It Tuesday

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

O Come All Ye Faithful

 O come all ye faithful joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
come and behold him born the King of angels;
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.
God of God light of light
Lo he not the virgin's womb;
Very God begotten not created:
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.
Sing choirs of angels sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God in the highest:
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
See how the shepherds summoned to his cradles,
leaving their flocks, draw nigh with lowly fear;
we too will thither hend our joyful footsteps;
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given;
word of the Father, now in flesh appearing:
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
~ sung by Chris Tomlin

  12. I adore this. It is stunning!

    And BTW, I do adore the longer hair. I think it makes you look younger! Seriously. I love it all ways, but I thought that when I saw the other pics. So don't cut it. It is pretty!

  19. I know you will treasure that special Nativity set always! I lost my mom a year and a half ago, and I know the loss of your mom will be heavy in your heart this year. We are blessed to both have had Christian mothers who are spending Christmas with Jesus!
