while thinking of the illustration for 2015, had in mind to draw something pretty intricate and similar to that of a colouring page. the illustration depicts the quiet scene on the night of the birth of our Lord Jesus. While He was king, He was humbly born in a lowly manger, with the animals as His first playmates. And the lowly shepherds were invited to be the first to go see him. On that night, these normal men were so amazed they went around to tell others of Jesus' birth and so in that little town of Bethlehem, the gaze was upon the little baby. our Lord doesn't seek for splendour or earthly power but that of humility and servanthood.
He was visited soon after by the magi that came from the East. They may not know who Jesus is but they came when they saw the star. And I could just imagine how the heavenly angels are gloriously singing and rejoicing of His birth.
These cards were documented when I was in Cambodia over Christmas. it was also the first time I wrote a card in a foreign language.
"During that first Christmas, the most beautiful display of love happened in a quiet little town" in the person of Jesus who later came to save humanity, bridging us back to God.
