These heart crafts put a smile on my face with their cheerful vibrant colors and warm fuzzy beauty. Each heart is unique and so sweetly crafted. These hearts are perfect for your children to craft for a loved one or as an "act of kindness" for an elderly person in the nursing home.
Perhaps you are thinking, why would I roundup a post on hearts when Valentine's Day is still a couple months away. The reason why is that this roundup post goes along with the Nativity story found in Luke 2:8-20 about the shepherds visiting baby Jesus.
8. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14.
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
15. When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” 16. So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18. and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
I like to think about what it means for Mary to ponder the shepherds words in her heart. This is a wonderful time to talk with your children about the meaning of these words and help them learn the "true" meaning of Christmas by crafting a hands-on heart.
