And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.
Seems like time is slipping by as quickly as it did in December. Before January slips completely away and I decorate for Valentine’s Day, I wanted to be sure to share my Winter Decorating with you.
Our wintry weather is only beginning in January and I like to devote the month to snow and snowmen.
I left the Christmas garland over my red hutch. I like the twinkle of the white lights at night. Then added some snowflakes, snowmen and icicles:
The rag snowman garland hangs from the peg shelf.
Red homespun stars and a snowman sit in a paper mache light box in this little nook. Again - love happy white lights in the winter evenings :)
All the glassware in this centerpiece is from either a thrift store or the Dollar Tree and glued together with E6000.
I made the snowballs by smearing joint compound onto styrofoam balls. When they dry, paint them white and sprinkle with glitter while the paint is still damp.
And finally – just in case you don’t know what snowflakes are made of :)
How do you decorate for winter?
1 Praise the LORD, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
In this new year I want my family to give our best in all we do… at homeschool, work, sports or chores… we want to give our best effort, as unto the Lord.
Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress.
1 Timothy 4:15 (NLT)
