Patter has given us a lovely Christmas hymn and if you want to read a little about the person who wrote this hymn please take time to visit Patter's blog  HERE

I have been making a 6 x 6 digital page and a large double sided ATC this year but with this week being a very busy week and I packed a lot of my craft things away with having my two oldest  ( 3 and 6 year olds ) granddaughters come to stay for five nights last week, I feel I cannot get the ATC made so have just made a 12 x 12 page which I will print out at 6 x 6.

On my page I have shared the first lines from the song and chose a scripture which I feel fitted it well.
The scripture are Mary's words after she visits her cousin Elizabeth.  I found the following commentary words very challenging and they are from a commentary by Adam Clarke:

" My spirit hath rejoiced - Exulted. These words are uncommonly emphatical - they show that Mary's whole soul was filled with the Divine influence, and wrapped up in God. "

Oh, how I desire to be "wrapped up in God" as Mary was. 

( For my digital art I have used a kit that just happens to be called  " O Holy Night" which is a collaborative kit by designers at Stuff to Scrap ) 


  1. As I read Patter's study, I thought of you hoping it would bring encouragement. Praying for you today.

  2. Just beautiful Anne-Marie! Love your words, your page, chosen scripture, everything. And thank you for always being SO faithful in these challenges and leaving me sweet comments. You are a light to me and I know many others! Sorry I don't always get over here to comment but I am always thankful for you! May you be blessed with a Merry Christmas and rest and peace!
