"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.  And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6



CHERISH

Please take time to "cherish" this Christmas:
- Cherish what God has done for us by sending his only Son so that we might have eternal life with Him!! 
- Cherish your family. 
- Cherish your friends. 
- Cherish your community. 
- Cherish your life.

Tier#1 - Jesus, Mary & Joseph


Lately we have been studying the nativity: first we studied the basics of the "Nativity" , then: "The Lowly Life of the Shepherd" and Wealthy Wise Men Traveling Far finally Angels Hovering 'Round.


This Nativity Scene is also precious to me - these revolving nativity scenes originated in Germany and I always remember my German family and friends showcasing this type of a nativity scene at Christmas time. 


My revolving nativity scene was made in China but it is still precious to me.  Each tier features a different part of the nativity:
Tier#1 - Jesus, Mary & Joseph along with the three wise men
Tier#2 - The shepherds and their sheep
Tier#3 - Angels


(Please enjoy the pictures below!  I also tried to include a video to show the revolving joy when the candles are lit).
