the true meaning of christmas

"From heaven You came,
Helpless Babe,
Entered our world, Your glory veiled;
Not to be served but to serve,
And give Your life that we might live."


I just quickly wanted to share my mantle in our bedroom..
I wanted something simple, and something that when I wake up in the morning, reminds me 
of the true meaning of christmas.


Immanuel - God with us.

"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son,
 andd will call him Immanuel."
Isaiah 7:14



Take the time and watch this amazing video below.
This happened on the 13th of November 2010 in a shopping centre in Canada.
I wish I had been there.

Flott. Både bilder og ord.
Ja det er viktigst det som skjedde på disse tider for over to tusen år siden. Ikke alle kakene og alt vi mener vi må gjøre før. Nydelig vimpelremse.
Ønsker deg ei fortsatt god førjulstid :)
