Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,

And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Saviour reigns;
Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders...

of His love.

Blessings from our home to yours!

Be sure to visit my friend Gabe's blog:  Large Family Living in a Small Family World for some great last minute stocking stuffer ideas and a chance to win Starbucks!


About the photos:  The girls used the Scripture frames from last year and made ornaments.  We are enjoying having various prophesies and their fulfillment right before our eyes.  If you would like to make them, we shared the verses here.  And we just slipped them into Dollar Store frames. 


  1. Joy to the world!! I have that same little green wreath, and I love that it's hanging around your chicken's neck :-)
    Happy Christmas!

  2. Your home looks lovely and so festive! You framed the chalkboard and added a ledge somewhere! Couldn't place where the ledge is...

    Hi Lis- Thank you! The wall is in the dining room. We have been wanting to add siding and ledge for a few years now and Tom decided to bless me with it in time for Christmas. Looking forward to Wednesday my friend!

    Thanks Kimberly- We bought it through Vision Forum

    but it doesn't look like they are stocking it now. It was made by Tonya from Fruitful Vine Creations and I bet she'd make you just what you want:


  5. I love the pictures! Your home looks so warm and cozy, I can just imagine sitting on the couch by the fire with a cup of tea chatting. We sure miss you all!
