'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.'
Here's part two of my Believe monthly painting challenge with Carrie.
I believe in Christ. I do.
This was an emotional painting for me, and I felt more compelled to paint this piece than I think I ever have with any other painting before.
And so, my wonderful bloggy family, I wish you the merriest Christmas ever, I hope you all have a very, very happy one. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, well, then I wish you a very happy rest of the week. :)
O holy night,
the stars are brightly shining
It is the night
of the dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
till he appear'd and the soul felt His worth
A thrill of hope,
the weary world rejoices,
for yonder breaks,
a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees,
oh hear the angel voices
Chains shall He break,
for the slave is our brother.
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy,
in grateful chorus raise we.
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord, let ever, ever praise Thee
Oh night divine.
Merry Christmas everyone. :)
And here's Carrie's painting, which I totally love. I want those cookies!!
