an evening of nesting...


my sweet friend katie hopes to be home from the hospital with her new little baby on christmas eve.
i imagine mary didn't think it was great timing to be due to deliver during tax season.
i imagine she would have preferred a calm, quiet delivery in Nazereth surrounded by family and friends...
but, there must have been an amazing bubble of peace in that sweet stable on christmas eve.
the town was bustling... the inns were overflowing... but mary and joseph and the shepherds and the angels... they had a silent night.
i imagine that's how it will be for katie.
i imagine her christmas with a newborn wrapped in swaddling clothes will be sweet.  peaceful and beautiful.
while christmas chaos swirls around them.
what a perfect gift.

Jen you are so awsome. Thank you so much for having us over and helping me finish my quilt. I probably would have just given up on trying to get it finished before the baby comes! You are such a great friend and example to me. thanks...
