This was a recent blog comment. “In this same vein (Scripture against TV) would you post scriptures that helped you decide how to celebrate Christmas? I’ve read elsewhere that you have Christ centered decorations only and I’d love to see pictures of your choices. I’ve been trying to incorporate your ideas, but would love further guidance. Have you got your Christmas decorations up yet?”
I reread Teri’s Corner and would add a reference that she did not include that has had an impact on how we decorate. “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not,” (Jeremiah 10:2-4).
So, here is the Corner link and a few pictures! Mom’s Corner on Christmas Decorating
The ceramic plaques with the names of Jesus were originally bought at a Christian book store. We no longer are able to find them.
I designed this cross one year.
