Paper bag luminaries on our front porch
Wow, is Christmas already nearly over? Last night and this afternoon my parents and I spent time visiting both sides of the family and now we are preparing to have a cozy evening at home. In the midst all the visiting and food and gifts, I've been remembering the One whose birthday is honored this holiday. Without Him, there would be nothing to be joyful about. :)
Though not on purpose, both my Christmas eve and Christmas day outfits ended up being teal with black. Perhaps teal is not a traditional Christmas color, but both outfits were festive. I've always thought shades of blue seemed appropriate for a winter holiday. :)
Above is what I wore to my aunt's house for Christmas eve. The blouse, cardigan and skirt are all thrifted. The gold bracelet I'm wearing is one that my Grandma handed down to me just last night.
Here is what I wore today and yes, you've seen this turtleneck before. It has been worn only four times so far, and three of those outfits have already been on Sunday Best. :P I had to wear it today though, because I got new tights for Christmas! My parents gave me a pair of teal and a pair of deep purple - Mom knows my taste well. ;) The leather flower pin I'm wearing in my hair was an accessory Mom made for me, and the necklace was a handmade gift from sweet friends.
I hope you all have had a wonderful day! Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whoever you are, I pray that the light of Jesus shines in your heart.
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." ~1 John 1:15
