1,2,3 let the countdown begin!

We're having visions of a sweet Christmas swirled with soft shades and a sprinkle of nutmeg in our store; displays of gifts to give. Yes, that's what Christmas is all about, giving. King of Kings, Lord of all! He gave us the ultimate gift, Jesus Christ. Celebrating Christmas in our "petite department store" style, Jesus didn't come in a big way, no commercialism, just a simple stable. I want our store to be a quiet reflection of this time of year, the real meaning! And, no Santa isn't invited, to this day, we have avoided this figure in our retail boutique. Frankly, there is no room for him in our inn! We want our store to be a place to get gifts for your special ones and to hear "God Bless you this Christmas Season".

Counting down the days of our Christmas open house, November 1st thru 3rd. Our party begins at dusk, Thursday evening as we un-veil our windows for our customers. Expect to hear strains of sheep baaing in an alpine village, a rainstorm and a medley of natures greatest hits. Did I hear a cuckoo clock? Your invited to a Woodland Christmas Party and want to celebrate with you the real meaning of Christmas. May God Bless each of you and despite the busy-ness of the season, remember to Crown Him, Crown Him, Lord of all this Christmas 2007....He is still the same yesterday, today & tommorow.

I love the spirit of this post. You are showing in your shop that you value and esteem what--no, WHO--is truly worthy to be praised!

May you have a blessed Holiday season.


Counting Your Blessings said...

Amen, amen, amen! We don't do Santa either (if we tell our kids there's a man we don't see giving gifts and he can gets around the world in one night, and then our kids find out he doesn't exist... will they ever trust us to believe in God?) I'm looking forward to your Christmas! Blessings... Polly (p.s. will email you later about the CL fair items)
