Welcome to December!
24 days and counting
I'm beginning with a fairly simple design to get started. This card features some of the names we associate with Jesus, especially this time of year.

While we are talking about the names of Christ, I recently came across an idea for something new this year. A name search. We know the reference in Isaiah 9:6 that gives us the proclamation "...and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." but did you know there are many more names that Jesus is known by? I've copied a page from the small Advent booklet Messiah Come and Behold Him (and it's very affordable $1.79 too) with many of the names...all you need to do is look up the references for reading during the coming days. One book suggested making a wreath of stars with a name on each star...so I'm going to see what I can come up with, so check back a little later in the month to see if anything interesting came of it, meanwhile, why not see if you can come up with an idea or two!
