Merry Christmas!

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch of their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news of great joy that will for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:8-11

It's Christmas Eve and I would like to wish you all a blessed Christmas full of love and happiness! Thank you for reading my blog!

So today on Ebay I sold my poinsettia card. I'm excited but also not, I loved that card. Well I will just have to paint another for me, huh? Here it is in all of it's glory. I hope the buyer loves it as much as me! Sometime if you are on Ebay, search for seller ID HeyLucy1...that's me!

Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. This world needs your mercy. Merry Christmas to you and your family from me and mine! BIG HUGS!
