A Presence A Day: Homemade Flower/Rosettes: Day 8

There are so many fab tutorials to make flowers from fabric:

Our Best Bites makes a rolled flower from fabric here!

Lex makes one here!

Wise Craft makes one here!

Make It Do makes a great peony from ribbon here!

Luke 2:1 ¶ And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

I don't have much to say today (shock, I know!) but I just wanted us all to read about the FIRST CHRISTMAS! 

On that silent night that Christ was born, this day was not even called CHRISTMAS!  The word "Christmas" is a combination of the words "Christ" and "Mass. The word "Mass" means death and was coined originally by the Roman Catholic Church.  Christmas was actually PAGAN, but thanks to Pope Martin Luther (1517) he started a reformation to take out the paganism of Christmas (THANK YOU MARTIN LUTHER).
So, I just want to remind us of Jesus' birth...it means so much to me...I hope it means a lot to you too!

God bless your Christmas!
