Glory to God

"Glory to God in the highest, 
and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased." 
Luke 2:14 (NASB)

Hi Sweet 'n Sassy Friends! Today I'm sharing a page from Luke 2. A Christmas passage in September??!! YES! :) This is a peek at one of the sets that will be featured this month; and any time is a good time to read about our Savior's birth! Am I right?

I've read the story of Jesus' birth in Luke many times. And because of that, sometimes I take for granted the awesomeness of this event. Our Lord and Savior, the Creator of all, came to earth and was born human, the created. He did that for us. He left His throne and was born in a manger. AMAZING!! And in this story, is a group of shepherds watching their flock. An angel appeared to them to tell them of Christ's birth. and then the heavenly host praised God, singing "Glory to God..." Can you imagine what it must have been like to experience that? At first they were frightened, but by the time the angels left, they wanted to go find the baby, Jesus! Immediately, they went and found Jesus, Mary and Joseph. They shared what the angels told them, and verse 18 says all who heard wondered at what the shepherds said. The shepherds glorified and praised God. I want to be like the shepherds- searching out Jesus and glorifying and praising Him always! I hope you do too!

For this page, I used one of the new Christmas sets Celebrate the Savior. I had such fun using this set! (I normally stay away from glitter since it gets EVERYWHERE, but the angels' dresses were screaming for glitter.) I used Creative Worship Outline Alpha for the words, and stamped the inside letter design with a stamp from Scribble Flowers. I used chalk pastels for the color.

And I was able to stamp in the margin of the facing page too!

I echo the angels' song, All Glory to God!
Blessings to you! Andrea
