Happy Holiday’s

We are preparing to start 2014 off right with scheduled activities at least every other month.  Please checkout the New Activities in the Members Only section !

A  beautiful testimony from one of our members below.

Can you believe Christmas will be here before we know it and 2014 is just around the corner?

 

Below is a my quilt, The Greatest Gift, which was in the holiday category of the quilt show.  At first glance, it looks like any other package with red and green paper and a yellow bow.  But, if you look close, printed on the trees is, ‘Jesus is the Reason for the Season’.   Beneath all the layers of Christmas, the lights, the gifts, the hustle and bustle and Silver Bells, lies the true meaning of Christmas: God’s greatest gift to humanity, his own Son, Jesus.

Christmas is about a very simple event, the birth of the Saviour.

 

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11

I enlarged the pattern, but you can make your own ‘gift’.  The pattern is a free download by Stephanie Serrano of Venus de Hilo.com.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
