Faith Song for His Glory - Ihr Kinderlein, Kommet

Hi Everyone, sew glad you stopped by today for Faith Song for His Glory with our favorite Christmas carol. I love to listen to music and Christmas songs and now they are on the radio in November right after Thanksgiving. I know a lot of you have your favorites that you love this special time of the year! We have to remember the true reason of Christmas as Jesus is the true reason we celebrate

Today there is a grand prize which is given by:


my gift is for you to know HIM...so with that said please follow the rules and comment on my blog and I will draw the winner of hop by random.org...and please give all the talented designer on my hop some love and Christmas wishes would be nice! Some have e-mail notifications you can sign up for to keep up with their happenings of their blog and we would love to have you as followers too but not required. 

If you just happened upon my blog today, I wouldn't want you to miss a single song, sew please start with Kari and if you traveled to me in this sing-a-long from Carolyn, then you are in the right place! SEW . . . have fun hopping and getting in the mood for Christmas!

My song is a German song, "Ihr Kinderlein Kommet" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK6zlHG_NSA0), I had learned in a small Congregational Church with the majority members were of German descent. I had learned my hymns in German prior to learning them in English. The English version of this hymn is "Oh Come Little" Children"(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Yds7yiiIE&feature=related). You have probably heard this song but never realized what it was.

I had made a pop-up card using a new paper that I had purchased at Michael's called Recollections, The Ballet which is featuring "The Nutcracker". I made the card using the English version. On the cover of the card are children which were cut from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge at 2.25 inches. The lettering is cut from the built-in cartridge from my E2 Alphabet. 

The card is cut at 7-inches with a 1-inch snip from either side at 3-inches. With this little slit, you need to fold it separately to make a little box in the inside. This little box is holding the stable upright when the card is open. The stable was cut from the Paper Doll Dress Cricut Cartridge. Paper at 3.5 inches and then inked with burgundy and black ink. Baby Jesus was cut from the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge. I got out my stickles and glittered glittered glittered the halo around Baby Jesus and the star which the Wisemen followed. 

Your next stop along your choral ways is Zenita for another wonderful project and song! 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the love and I wish you and yours a "Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year! " 

God Bless
Hugs and Love,
