Christmas 12- The Way, the Truth, the Life

Bible Marginalia Series- #237
John 14:6

I never really knew that the book of John
 was one of my favorites.
But, every time I come to find 
margin space it is already full.
So some creative work here for Christmas 12.
Daughter Laura, had a handmade 
water-colored card that I cut up 
to make a "dangle " margin addition.
The double -walled triangle 
has a center filled with the words-
I Am.
Then the words of John 14:6 
added in the triangle margin.
These words are certainly fitting
 as the Advent-Christmas 
liturgical season comes to a close.
What glad tidings to all who have come
 to see this newborn King this season.
 We rejoice and sing 
that the resurrection promise of eternal life 
gives us the HOPE 
that opens another year of living-
by faith.
