O Emmanuel

December 23

Symbols: Manger

Come to save us, O Lord our God.

O Emmanuel (Isa 7: 14; 8: 8), our King and Lawgiver (Gen 49:10; cf. Ezek 21: 32), the Expected of the nations and their Savior (Isa 33: 22): Come, and save us, O Lord our God.

The manger reminds us of the simplicity and poverty surrounding the birth of Jesus and is representative of His life of humility.

Recommended Readings: Isaiah 9:2-7

Hi Beth!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I just checked out your Etsy shop and added it to my favorites. I had a great time at CAM. It was my first real show, and I thought I did pretty well. I hope to get involved more this summer at Eastern Market and at some more craft shows. I do my sewing when Ava naps or while she watches me, and a lot of things go undone around our house-- you should see the dog hair that collects in the corners! Merry Christmas! Addie
