Good morning all!

The inspiration scripture is Ecc. 3:1 "A time for every season"  Well, Christmas, the time we celebrate the birth of Christ is my season for this card.
We celebrate with an abundance of decorations, trees, ornaments, winter flowers (poinsettias), wreaths, garland, candles, name it!  My card is displaying a poinsettia ornament.  I hope you will join us for the next two weeks as we make cards inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1.

*The Blessed Season*
To Christians all over the world, this is probably the most important season of all (the only one that may trump Christmas is Easter, when Christ rose again and saved the world, those who would believe). The Poinsettia, also know as the Christmas Star or the Christmas flower is a traditional winter flower that we use at Christmas.  The tradition comes from a Mexican legend of a Christmas miracle, weeds turning into a beautiful red and green flower when they were given as an offering from a poor little girl.
Well, Christmas is the time for miracles! Christ birth was a miracle in itself and everything He did after was miraculous!   Christmas is truly a BLESSED SEASON.
Read about the birth of Christ in Luke 1:1 to Luke 2:20.
