a few of my favorite things


'peace' in Hebrew, 
spoken in Israel and many other countries

Jesus and the lion and the lamb

kershisnik nativity

A few of my favorite things....
like God's chosen people, the Jews -

and the wonderful nativity painting above.

I can just try to imagine all the angels and how excited and full of wonder they were when God's Son Jesus was born as a human!!

I also love the expression on Joseph's face!!!
...and did you notice that the dog sees the angels?

the angel appears to the shepherds
by Walter Rane

I love angels of all kinds.
I especially like 'male' angels, 
as all the angels that are mentioned by name in the Bible have male names!
