Here is an ornament that is really fast to crochet and looks super cute on the tree.  He would make a great package topper for those of you that are more creative and fancy with your wrapping. 

 

I just saw a really neat gift idea!  Hot Cocoa Candle!  This one children can help with but it much of it needs to be done by an adult.  I know that I would love to receive one of these as a gift. 

And today’s scripture:

CHRISTMAS IS a time for Decorations!

Psalm 118:19-29

New International Version (NIV)

19 Open for me the gates of the righteous;
   I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.
20 This is the gate of the LORD
   through which the righteous may enter.
21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;
   you have become my salvation.

 22 The stone the builders rejected
   has become the cornerstone;
23 the LORD has done this,
   and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 The LORD has done it this very day;
   let us rejoice today and be glad.

 25 LORD, save us!
   LORD, grant us success!

 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.
   From the house of the LORD we bless you.[a]
27 The LORD is God,
   and he has made his light shine on us.
With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession
   up[b] to the horns of the altar.

 28 You are my God, and I will praise you;
   you are my God, and I will exalt you.

 29 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
   his love endures forever.

I pray that as we decorate we remember that our decorations can be another way that we praise our Lord!
