Joy to the World

24 Dec

One of my most joyous Christmas eve was spent carolling to the accompaniment of a hymn player, outside a church building, as snow fell quietly onto me.

Hence, when I saw a post about a gingerbread bread house, I decided to make one with the scene of that memorable Christmas eve.

Following the clear instructions on the post, I was able to build my first gingerbread bread house effortlessly.

Ingredients to make a loaf of chocolate nutty (walnut), fruity (cranberry) and spicy (cinnamon + nutmeg) bread


A peaceful scene was created with "fallen snow" ~ icing sugar!


Some non-food items were gathered to complete the garden around the house.


Welcome to God's house of love.


The angels said, "I bring you good news of great joy..." Luke 2:10


Today a Saviour has been born to you.


Snowman rolls on the ground cheering, "Joy to the World! The Lord has come!"

Jesus Christ is God’s special Christmas present, a gift of joy and love, to the world.

Have you accepted that special gift?

May the joy and love of Christmas fill your home and warm your heart.

Have a blessed Christmas.
