Another fabulous challenge for Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week. Our verse today is well-known. And you may think it is too early for Christmas, but now is the perfect time to start on those Christmas cards. :)
"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
Now, if you think about this, this really goes way beyond the Christmas story and Christmas cards. What God did...sending His son to earth to die for our sins...forever changed the world! Because Christ was born, we can live. Because Christ was born, our sins can be wiped free. Because Christ was born, there is HOPE! And that hope is still alive. Even if you are not a Christian, you know the story, you know Christ was born in a manger. But this story has a way of impacting every part of your life. It has impacted my life. I am who I am because Christ was born that day. God truly showed us how much He cares about us through this very thing. There is true power behind this statement (the verse). It is so much more than just the beginning of a story. (And if you ever do want to talk to me about it, never hesitate to).
Ok, now on to the card. :)
So the challenge is to make a card or project featuring the nativity or other religious theme about Christ's birth.
My card is REALLY simple. But somehow, it just seemed appropriate. Maybe it was the mood I was in. Here it is:
That tag can pull out and be used as a bookmark, or whatever. :)
I hope you play along with us this week. Check out what everyone else did here at SSCC. And have an awesome Sunday! Take a moment to thank God for how truly amazing He is!
