Homemade decorations. Can you tell what this is, the one on the left? ...snicker.... My hubbie and son worked together and made reindeer for the front of the house. My son is five here, and just old enough to start soccer. (Notice the brand new chin guards; he wanted to wear them all the time.)
Because my son helped craft the creature, I saw it through a mom's rose-colored-artist eyes. It was the most beautiful Rudolf of all. And yes, we put them (two) out in the front yard for all the world to see. Nothing made me prouder than to show off my child's work. (And I still think it's the cutest one around.)
"And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.'" Luke 2:13-14
It pleased God to place Jesus in among us unruly, uncouth people, putting Him into our world for all to see. God knew the taunting and laughter that would eventually turn to rage against His Son. Even so, He sent a sky full of angels to sing His pleasure and pride at the birth of His Son, advancing the work of eternity. God crafted salvation.
I am proud of all my homemade decorations.
