Merry Christmas and may God's peace shine forth in your hearts this season! Thank you for viewing our Christmas Collection.
We would like to first introduce our “Away in a Manger” stole. Inspired by Luke 2, this stole features baby Jesus in a manger, shepherds watching over their flocks by night, and a heavenly host of angels descending from above. The verse on the back, verse 14, refers to the angels’ adorning praises. It reads, “’Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!’” We cherish the idea of lowly shepherds being the first to hear the joyous announcement of Christ’s birth; for this part of the story mimics sentiments found in the Magnificat. Upon discovering she was pregnant, Mary humbly sang, “‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior…he has brought down the powerful from their thrones and uplifted the lowly.’” What an awakening reminder that Christmas isn’t about presents and material things. It’s about God’s love for the lost, broken, hurting, and hungry in our world.
Our “Joy to the World” stole reflects the same heavenly host and back collar verse featured on our other design. We love the way these angels are positioned as if they’re bursting down from the heavens with hearts extended and trumpets blaring. The fabrics and thread we chose make the angels shine in all their splendor. May your holidays sparkle with the same amount of joy proclaimed on the night that our God came to be with us in love and for all eternity.
