It just makes me smile.
One of the reasons I enjoy it so much is because it's where I display my favorite nativity scene.
The nativity is the centerpiece of my living room.
And the SEASON.
If you're like me, you have a slight pinning problem. You know, a finger that keeps clicking "pin" on the very addictive website, Pinterest?
Can I get an "amen?"
While obsessively pinning I came across an amazing sign that I thought would be the perfect backdrop to my nativity scene.
So I pinned it.
And then I made it--with a lot of help from the hubs!
Here's the final product:
The hubs built the sign and I painted on the text. Yep, the hubs has got some mad skills. . .
I pinned it.
We made it.
And we love it.
Every time I look at my mantle I'm reminded of the true meaning of Christmas: the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
The crazy thing is, He gave us the greatest gift ever on HIS birthday.
Wait, aren't we supposed to do the gift-giving when it's someone else's b-day?
Now that's some crazy love He has for us!
