๐ŸŽต Iโ€™ll be home for Christmas ๐ŸŽต
Where is home for you? Will you be heading there for Christmas?
๐ŸŽ„
Home is something I have pondered greatly over the past 7 years. During these years I have experienced 5 major out of state moves with my family.
๐Ÿ 
Where is home? Do I even have a home? After moving so many times it often feels like no place is home.
๐Ÿ 
But during these times that I am reminded by the Lord that I am only a sojourner here.
๐ŸŒŽ
Thatโ€™s one of the reasons I love Christmas and the season of advent. Such a beautiful reminder of how Jesus came to journey here among us, but His ultimate home was with the Father. And to remind us that He is coming again to bring His children home once and for all with Him!
๐ŸŽต
O come oh come Emmanuel!

Breath of heaven - Watercolor on paper. Had fun working on this piece today. Doves are some of my favorites. Especially white ones.
๐Ÿ•Š
The dove is such a symbol of peace and the presence of the Holy Spirt. Our breath from heaven.
๐Ÿ•Š
So thankful for our Lord who came to earth and left us with the Holy Spirit. Truly peace on earth.

Joy to the world the Lord has come!
๐ŸŒŽ
Let earth receive her King!
โค๏ธ
Let every heart prepare him room
๐Ÿ•Š 
And heaven and nature sing!
๐ŸŽถ
For over the past year this has been my oldest daughterโ€™s most favorite song. Sheโ€™s sung it all year long and requested it to be sung to her on many occasions.
๐ŸŽถ
I love hearing her little voice sing the three verses she knows. What a blessing she is to me. I love that I get to be her mother.

Day 2 of challenge was to illustrate โ€œSilent Nightโ€
๐ŸŒŒ
I had been wanted to paint a full moon with trees for a while now, so this was a good excuse.
๐ŸŒ•
Thereโ€™s something about the stillness and quietness of night that shows forth the peace we all long for.
๐ŸŒŒ
I am so grateful for the Prince of Peace coming to earth, making our peace possible!

๐ŸŽตOur finest gifts we bring๐ŸŽต
Iโ€™ve been pondering over the song of the Little Drummer Boy over the past day and some of its lyrics. I think it was really captured right
๐Ÿฅ
When we realize that the finest gift we can bring is just who we are, thatโ€™s all we need to be before the King of  kings.
๐Ÿ‘‘
Just as I am without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bidest me come thee, O Lamb of God, I come!
๐ŸŽถ
Happy December knowing the King loves you as you are!
๐Ÿฅ
All the pondering on the Little drummer boy was actually inspired by @lydiatjia2014. She is hosting a 7 day watercolor challenge. I did the first one... see if I make any of the others. Love her idea with the Christmas songs!

Our home is coming together with pictures being hung on the wall! Makes the house much more a home.
๐Ÿ 
So thankful for my husband who has been the one hanging pictures and making things look warm and welcoming.
๐Ÿ‘Œ
I love this little piece that he created recently. โ€œBe still and know that I am Godโ€
๐Ÿฆ…
Itโ€™s been a great reminder for me especially in this season of getting settled in from moving (plus now all the holiday activities!) that being still before God is still the most important.
๐Ÿ•Š
The peace that comes when I take the time to quiet myself before Him and acknowledge His Lordship, is so worth it!

8x10 |crane and cherry tree blossoms|

Should I be surprised that my hubbyโ€™s first watercolor painting is Asian and Japanese in style?
๐Ÿ˜‹
If you know anything about my man, you know his love for the Japanese culture and the way oriental things look.
๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต
I especially love how he captured the ink style of sumi painting on a cream background. Plus Iโ€™m partial to cherry blossoms, so of course I love this piece he came out with.
๐ŸŒธ
So looking forward to see what else he creates!

8x10 twin baby elephant heart print.
๐Ÿ˜
This was my first โ€œrealโ€ elephant painting that I accomplished this year. I just loved putting the two babies together and crafting a heart from them. One of my favorites.
๐Ÿ’™
It was my husband and his love for elephants that actually got me started on elephants this year.
๐ŸŽจ
This year has been a year to really stretch and challenge myself in learning. Itโ€™s been so neat to look back over what Iโ€™ve learned through the process. Iโ€™m so glad my hubby challenged me to try the elephants!

And when temps drop and get really cold, itโ€™s a time to snuggle on the couch, get in front of a fire and enjoy homemade ice cream??
๐Ÿจ
Yep that is exactly what my hubby and I got to do last night and it was so great!
โค๏ธ
Listening to the wind through the window and the sounds of a cracking fireplace snuggling on the couch with our ice cream. Think we started a new tradition.

What are somethings you do when the weather turns colder that make you warm inside?
