My Most Favorite Treasure of ALL


The Escape to Egypt
 13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”  14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt,



Another gift from my daughter-in-law, she, gave me this statue 15 years ago. It is not packed away and has a place of honor in my living room 365 days a year. I love the detail and just looking at it.

Something like this should not be only put out one month a year, we need all the art and beauty we can get, especially at our age! Where does it live? It is beautiful!!!

It is a really beautiful piece. I would not pack it away either, it deserves a place of honor in your home.

Before I forget again, I really like your new header.

That's a lovely sculpture. What's it made of? From the first picture my guess was wood but then in the other photos it looked more white and like it's reflecting light.

Such a lovely sculpture, Sandra. I, too, noticed that it seems to reflect the light.

I love that statue! I don't have anything up. I do have a whatever it would be called with the nativity in a big ball and around the edge of it are scenes of Bethleham (that spelling doesn't look right) em? am? ...anyway scenes and it's a music box. I bought it in an antique shop in northern California once and five months later I dropped it while moving and well...there ya' are. Doesn't work so well anymore. I never bring it out anymore.

Some traditions are meant for year around. this is a beautiful figurine. I don't blame you for having it out all the time. Its not your usual artwork about Jesus as a baby. Maybe that's why I like it too. Its unusual.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

This is really beautiful Sandra. What wonderful detail. I wouldn't pack it away either. I would have it where I could see it everyday. It really is beautiful...thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous statue, Sandra --and I can understand why it stays out all year... We do not EVER need to forget that Christmas is all about Jesus' birth....

Loved your Sandra Claus photos too-in the other post...

Have a blessed Sunday.
