Kneeling Santa


I have one of these statues in my home and it is by far the favorite christmas decoration of everyone in my family. Two years ago, when we went to put away Christmas, my son wanted to keep this out for the whole year.

One last thought before I sign off until 2009! In Primary last Sunday, during her sharing time on Christmas, one of the primary counselors read the following scripture: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son."

To make this more personal to ourselves and to our children, remove the word "world" and put in a name.

For God so loved "Mason", that He gave His only Begotten Son.

Merry Christmas Everyone

My Mom has this also---and I love the scripture idea. We love to put names in alot when we read the scriptures--especially the Book of Mormon for some reason. Keeps everyone awake! Merry Christmas wonderful person!!!!

I love that. It's easy to generalize and skate over the depth of what that scripture means but insert your own name and..WOW.

He did it for me.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

This is a fabulous statue. You don't see it too often. And I love how you asked us to sub our name in for "the world". Made it much more personal! Yes, he does love each of us personally. I'm glad we get to celebrate Christ's birth each year. Have a wonderful and heavenly Christmas!
