Who Was (Is) Jesus Christ?

My last post was on Saint Nicholas so I wanted to do a post on the man behind "the Reason for the Season". Jesus Christ himself.  Jesus is the Son of the Living God, our Lord, and our Risen Savior.

For this post I have used some antique postcards, Nativity sets, and a few ornaments.


The first nativity I want to show you is one I bought at a sale this Fall. It is a "one of a kind" because it was a school paper mache project that was made in art class years ago. A Pringles can was used for Mary and Joseph. I thought that was cute. Jesus was crafted from some sort of a little box.


Hanging on the wall above the Holy Family is a wreath with three brass snowflake ornaments with white porcelain pieces hanging down that depict scenes of the Christmas Story.


A few early 1900's postcards...



Over on the mantel...


is this sweet vintage porcelain set...


And over at the Christmas tree are a few ornaments, the two Creche's are Hallmark...


and this Hallmark Nativity Set. The vintage angels are paper mache Germany pieces.


My last Nativity is this Hallmark toy that I bought for my kids several years ago.


Thank you so much for visiting today and I do hope you know this wonderful man behind "the Reason for the Season".

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

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

                                                                         John 3:16

    I like the paper mache Nativity scene and of course your post cards.
    I think the USA needs to realize He is the Prince of Peace if we only turn to him
