Challenge:

Host a Tree Decorating Party! Invite friends and neighbors over for an afternoon and ask that they bring one ornament each. In return, provide some snacks and or hot cocoa to enjoy while you admire the finished product. Better yet, call up an assisted living home in your area and take your snacks, your group and your ornaments to help decorate the residents common area to give them something festive to look at, it will be an encouragement to them to see friendly fresh faces coming to visit them as well!

Luke 2:7

and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

A year ago at this time our family was staying at the “Bostrum Inn” as we so affectionately called it! My parents hosted us for what was supposed to be a six week stay turned into a six month stay as we searched for housing. Cayden was a very small baby at the time. I thought being without a home of our own was so difficult. Imagine Joseph and Mary’s struggle when they were housed in the main room where the animals were kept.

Still, Joseph and Mary stayed to fulfill their duty to the law of the land (everyone had to go back to their “hometown” for a census of sorts)

All the while, Joseph and Mary were fulfilling prophecy told long before-you can read about that in the book of Isaiah…
