Merry Christmas! I am very thankful for each one of you who reads this blog. Truly!
I created something for you, dear reader, to help you set your eyes on Christ Jesus at the start of the Advent season: free art prints to adorn your walls, dressers, mantels, wherever! Let me tell you a bit about them and then I'll let you know how you can download them (for free!).
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!" Luke 2:14 (ESV)
Last December, Ben read part of Luke 2 aloud almost every night after dinner as part of our family's Advent celebration. Jane learned much of it by heart, and I love hearing her sweet voice declare these words from Scripture. She has an angel costume and loves to dress up as a “Luke 2 angel." I put this text in an art print so you can meditate on it, too!
“The Weary World Rejoices" (from “O Holy Night")
I think I can say that “O Holy Night" is my favorite Christmas song. The music is powerful and the lyrics are rich. This text needed to be printed. Within the past month or two, I have noticed that a weariness has set in—just the tiredness of life's responsibilities and cares! But the Gospel is literally the good news: Our weary hearts can REJOICE because Christ, the Lamb of God, has come to take away the sins of the world. God is making all things new. Jesus is the light of the world, the bright morning star, and I hope this art print reflects that light to you!
So these art prints are for you, friends. Grab a frame (here are some of my favorite sources for inexpensive frames!) or use one you already have (that's what I did). And if a frame doesn't suit you, tack them up with some pretty washi tape.
You can download these files for free when you subscribe to my blog via email. You'll also receive my free decorating guide, and that email will include the link and password so you can access these art prints to download. For those of you who have already subscribed to my blog, thank you! Watch for an email from me. I'll include the link and password so you can get these free goodies.
I printed these two art prints on heavy (shiny) cardstock at FedEx Office for just a few dollars, but maybe you have your own color printer and can do it from home right this minute! I'd love to see where you put your prints! Snap a picture and tag me on Instagram (@modernchemistryathome) and perhaps I'll share your photo. I hope these art prints are a blessing to you. Thank you for following me here. Merry Christmas—glory to God in the highest!
