Art Sale TonightPosted: December 5, 2013
I have been a busy bee painting nativities. It was just a little art experiment, but they’ve been pretty popular. It was getting a little tricky working on one at a time and then posting it, so I decided to just work all week and then post them all at once. So that’s happening tonight at 8pm Central time. My Etsy shop, which is pretty nekkid right now, will get refilled. I’m doing these a bit differently, though. I’ve left the space next to Mary and Jesus empty so you can add something special to you. I can’t fit the whole gospel on there, but a verse or two will work. Here’s a few ideas to help you choose (and a sneak peek of some of tonight’s pieces!).
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7
O Come let us adore him, Christ the Lord
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:13-14
O Holy Night, The stars are brightly shining
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11
Silent Night, Holy Night, All is Calm, All is Bright
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.Isaiah 7:14
Star of Wonder, Star of Night, Star with Royal Beauty Bright
So if you want to buy one tonight, you just tell me what verse you want on there and they will ship out this weekend. I have been SO blessed by making these. It has really changed my focus of this Christmas season and I hope they will do the same for you.
