Merry Christmas, ladies! I hope you all are having a blessed December.
Have any of you tried the tutorials from Emma week yet? If so, I’d love to see how they turned out! If you want to be featured in a “Reader Results” post or just want to send pictures, please leave a comment.
I’m really excited about some new tutorials coming up. There’s some Narnian styles I want to do, how to make hair flowers, and a vintage style or two. With Christmas and real life, I’m not sure when, but never fear! As MacArthur said, I shall return.
For my US readers, Cranford will be on PBS next week. I’ve never seen it before; it is good? The costumes look pretty!
As we celebrate Christmas, remember the reason Christ came. A little family in a stable in Bethlehem was only the beginning of the most beautiful example of God’s love. We were made to have fellowship with God, but that fellowship is broken by sin. The Bible says that we have all fallen short of God’s standard, which is perfection. Everybody, including me, has told a lie, been jealous, or been disrespectful of a parent. But God didn’t leave us without hope of forgiveness! He sent His Son Jesus into the world so that, by Jesus’ death, we could be forgiven of our sins. Jesus was perfect so He did not have to die for His own sin. Instead, He took your punishment and mine so that we could be forgiven and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. All you have to do is accept His free offer of forgiveness by trusting in Jesus alone (not doing good things or religious activity) to make you right with God.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” — Romans 6:23
“In this was manifested [shown] the love of God toward us: that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Herein is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation [atonement or forgiveness] for our sins.” — 1 John 4:9-10
If you have any questions, please contact me. I’d love to talk with you!
Again, Merry Christmas!
