Part 1 What
Hark The Herald Angels will be my first craft to showcase. I know this craft is Christmas themed and we haven’t even given out Halloween candy yet. But our family L-O-V-E-S Christmas. We will begin decorating no later than November 1st and the Christmas decorations will stay up through January 1st. We do have other home decor that reminds us the rest of the year that “Jesus is the Reason” so I’ll be sharing those crafts with you too. Just not yet.
Part 2 Why
The angel project was inspired by both the song “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” and the scripture Luke 2:14 (NIV) “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace.”
If you have time, look up and meditate on the words to the song: “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”
Lord I pray we along with Your angels will sing glory to Your Son, King Jesus. I pray for Your peace on earth (Luke 2:14 AMP). I pray for Your mercy to rain down gently upon us. I pray we will be reconciled with You (II Corinthians 5:18 AMP). I pray we as a nation will join other nations in experiencing joy because of our Savior Christ Jesus (Matthew 2:10 AMP). Thank You for being our everlasting God (Isaiah 40:28 AMP). Thank You for being our Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14 AMP; Matthew 1:23 AMP). Thank You for being our Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6 AMP). Thank You for bringing Light and Life to all (John 1:4 AMP). Thank You for bringing us healing (Mark 2:17 AMP). Thank You for giving us a second birth (John 3:3 AMP). In King Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
