Here is a pretty rendition of What Child Is This?

Okay, we are getting really close to the deadline now.  Today’s idea is a quick one that kids can make and give.  Fleece pocket scarves are gifts that would be appreciated by any who receive it.  Plus one piece will make several scarves 😉  Another fun idea that kids can make to give is pin-up pen/pencil cups.  Super cute idea!

Are you getting hungry for yummy treats yet?  Or maybe you want to bless your neighbors with something yummy but you don’t have a bunch of time.  Double Delicious Bars are the perfect yummy treat to make.  Super fast and easy and they taste so good!

Today’s Scripture is:


Matthew 11:25-30

New International Version (NIV)

The Father Revealed in the Son 25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

   27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

   28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Today as we finish our shopping and wrapping and baking.  As we make special memories with our children.  As we love those around us let’s remember that His yoke is easy and his burden is light.  He gives us rest and peace.  All is calm, all is bright when we rest in Him.
