HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!!

The shepherds and wise men of the Christmas story hold the keys to a Happy and Prosperous New Year!  Thus we again share an updated presentation of our stained glass nativities.   Yes, you have seen them but take another look and read.

Nativity - Eglise Saint-Christophe - Charleroi, Belgium
Matthew 1:18-25

     "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost."
"Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to pour her away privily."
"But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thous son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost."
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins."
"Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,"
"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."
"Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:"
"And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS."

     "And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed."
"(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)"
"And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city,"
"And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)"
"To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child."
"And so it was, that, while they were there, the days where accomplished that she should be delivered."
"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn."

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people."
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
"And this shall be a sign unto you, Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."
"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,"
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
"And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known not us."
"And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger."
"And when they had see it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child."
"And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds."
"But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart."
"Ant the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them."

"Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him."
"Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligent what time the star appeared."
"And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also."
"When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was."
"When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy."
"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh."

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018 !!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017!

Santa - Always on a Ladder - Ardennes - France
Christmas in the Ardennes

We thought to share just a few of the sights of Christmas here in the Ardennes region of France.
Santa is always climbing a ladder and always headed for a window.  Just the way Santa does here.

Santa - Headed for a Window - Ardennes - France
For some reason Santa's bag of toys is usually gold.  Not sure why.......just the way it is here.

Church Nativity - Ardennes - France
Each of the Catholic churches has its own creche or nativity.  They usually have no baby Jesus until late on Christmas Eve.

Christmas Market - Place Ducale  - Charleville-Mezieres, France
Each city, town and village seems to have its Christmas market from early December until the first of the New Year.  The one in Charleville-Mezieres is not that grand and focuses on food items for the most part.  It is still a festive event that is well attended.  We noticed even the smallest of villages will have a one day Christmas market - usually on Saturday or Sunday.

Our Mail Lady - Christmas Spirit - Charleville-Mezieres, France

Our mail lady loves the holidays and will dress for each of the major ones.  We caught here this year in the in the dim light of morning dressed in here Santa outfit.  She had the bells and lights to go along with all the rest.

Marionnette Santa - Charleville-Mezieres, France
Of course one has to have a Marionette Santa in Charleville, the world center of marionnettes.  As so we found in the local book store window.

Pere Noel - Christmas Market - Charleville-Mezieres, France
In France and other parts of Europe, Pere Noel does not always dress in red.  Here is proof.

Saint Nicolas and his Donkey - Charleville-Mez
Stained Glass Nativities

We hope you enjoy the stained glass nativities we have found in the past few months here in France.   They come in all styles, which if fun to see.  Each one is unique.

No, we don't just travel around looking for stained glass nativities .  These were mostly taken while we were headed to do apartment inspections, to Stake Conference, to District Meetings, etc.   We did get a couple during P-Day activities.

We share so many of our nativities now, because we will not be keeping a Mission Blog next Christmas.  We will be home, hopefully enjoying Christmas with family and friends.  We do miss that.

Merry Christmas!  We hope our stained glass nativities help you feel the Spirit of the Season - the Spirit of Christ our Lord and Savior.

May we all be as wise as the shepherds and come unto the Savior Jesus Christ with haste that we may return glorifying and praising God!  May we be as humble as the wise men that we may open our treasures and offer our gifts to our Saviour Jesus Christ!  May we find peace on earth through our goodwill towards others throughout the year ahead!

Coq of the Week

Our coq this week is one of the brightest we have seen.  He stood strongly out in the Winter sky as the sun shone upon him.  From a distance he appeared much like what one might imagine the star that lead the wise men to the baby Jesus was.  We believe his massive tail did the trick.  Every faithful and diligent!

Nativity - Traditional French

During the Christmas Season nativity scenes are found in nearly every Catholic Church in France.  The big problem is getting into the churches to enjoy them.  It is usually only major churches in larger cities that open their churches on a regular basis.  It is difficult to visit the interiors of small village churches.  This year we discovered a way to visit a few of the small village churches around us. 

One day on our way to visit the Dampt family we noticed a small billboard in a very small village announcing "Chemin des Creches" that pricked our interest.  When we arrived at the Dampts we explained what we saw but they were unaware of such a thing.  We expected that, by the name, there would be several places to see creches/nativities.  A couple of days later I mentioned the "Chemin des Creches" to the Biver family and they knew nothing about it either.  However, the following Wednesday, Brother Biver gave me a small brochure his wife had found regarding the "Chemin des Creches".   As it happens there were a total of twenty-two village churches participating in the "Chemin des Cresches".  Approximately ten of them were within a half hour of our apartment so we decided we would try to visit a few.  Problem was that their open house schedules were very restricted to a couple of Saturdays and Sundays.

This past weekend we went to visit six of the villages churches participating in the "Chemin des Creches" event.  As its happened our first church was by far the best.  It probably had a hundred or so creches from around the world.  A little different than we had expected - we had anticipated one super nice creche in each of the churches.  The other churches had a few creches but nothing like the first.  We particularly enjoyed some of the creches from the Champagne-Ardennes area.  Many were made of straw.  We were able to appreciate creches from around the world which caused us to think of our hundred plus creches at home and how we might host a Ward Christmas event at our Ward once we are back home.
Church Nativity - Eglise Saint-Martin - Guignicourt-sur-Vence, France
The creche/nativity pictured above was not one of the display creches but rather the church nativity.  As per French tradition this creche is void of the baby Jesus.  He will arrive on Christmas eve to complete the Birth of Christ scene.

Stained Glass Nativity - Cathedral Notre-Dame - Verdun, France
 Stained Glass Nativity

Here are two more of the stained glass nativities we have found here in France.  The one above, from Verdun, is interesting from the point of view of the gifts being offered - mostly produce, including grapes.  We each have something a little different to offer Christ but when it all boils down our gift is one of love.  May we each offer the Savior our love through obedience to His commandments, faithfulness to our covenants and perseverance to the end.

The one below is a recent find.  We found it a bit Christmasy with its colors of green - they don't show as brightly in the photo as they did in person.  Joseph and Mary alone in the stable, with the animals, contemplating the wondrous event of the birth of Christ.  May we each find some quiet time to meditate and consider the glorious event of the Birth of our Savior Jesus Christ and His importance in our life.
Stained Glass Nativity - Elise Saint-Martin - Guignicourt-sur-Vence, France
 Coq of the Week

This coq was watching over the creches displayed in the Church Saint-Michel in the village of Boulzicourt, France.  With lights upon him, he seemed to be inviting all to come see the baby Jesus lying in the manger.   If the ox and the donkey watched over the baby Jesus where he lay, why not the coq?  Certainly there were coqs in the stable that night long ago.

Like many others, this coq has obviously taken a beating or two over the years, but..... he has not given up.  Each of us will have our beatings during this earthly life but we must not give up.  May we stand true and faithful unto the end...........like the coq.

Snow - 10 December, 2017 - Charleville-Mezieres, France

Christmas Season

Signs of Christmas

The first snowfall of the Winter!  In actuality we do not receive a tremendous amount of snow here in the Ardennes.  However, today we received as much as we did all last year.  We find it makes a nice enhancement and reminder of the Christmas Season that is upon us.

Most folks here appreciate the snow but not the slick sidewalks and roads that come with it.  On the not-so-positive side; several members of the Charleville-Mezieres Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints were not able to make it to church today because of the snow.

We are grateful for the snow and the encouragement it gives us to seek the warmth and comfort that we receive from our Savior Jesus Christ and the Gospel he taught.
Snow - 10 December, 2017 - Charleville-Mezieres, France
On Wednesday the 6th, we were again reminded of the Christmas Season as we encountered Saint Nicolas in the street near our apartment.  We find him and his donkey unusual and very interesting.  He was busy greeting all the children and passing out chocolate candies.  Saint-Nicolas coming on the 6th of December is a cultural difference we have noticed here in France.

Which leads into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints program named "Light the World". While we have a French version of the program; the daily themes vary significantly, at least in order of the day which they appear.  Nonetheless, in the US version, Wednesday the 6th theme was "Judge not, that ye be not judged".  While wondering what to do this day, Sister Clark suggested that I "avoid badmouthing the French for a whole day."  Wise council as I had fallen into the trap of complaining about cars parked on the sidewalks, dog poop everywhere, weird driving habits and on and on.  We gave it a try with rather good success.  As a result we now feel less inclined to complain or "JUDGE" the people we have been called to serve.  We do love the French people!  May we each be a light to the world.

Stained Glass Nativity

We really do enjoy sharing our stained glass nativities with you.  We find a wonderful spirit radiated by most of them and they help us greatly with remembering the true meaning of Christmas.  They help us feel the Spirit of Christ and bring us closer to him.  We find them inspiring and a blessing in our lives.  We pray that you might enjoy them also.

We found the nativity below in late June of this year, not sure where we were going or doing but we are glad to have found this nativity.  It is located in the Church of Saint Remy in the village of Thiaucourt, France.

Alma 19:13 
     "For as sure as thou livest, behold, I have seen my Redeemer; and he shall come forth, and be born of a woman, and he shall redeem all mankind who believe on his name."

Stained Glass Nativity - Eglise Saint-Remy - Thiaucourt, France
Coq of the Week

Perhaps, just another bold and proud coq doing what he was called to do.  Nearly every coq has seen bad days and hard times - - - look closely and you will recognize what we say.  So it is for us, we each have our ugly days and challenging times - none are exempt.  During the struggle may we stand fast like the coq -  remaining faithful and true to our purpose here on earth.  We have accepted the call of earth life and now must persevere to the end.  The coq is a wonderful example for us all.... and he does have many sunny bright days.  May our days be bright, especially during this Christmas Season.

Quiet Books - 6 Month Service Project - Nearly Finished!
Service Project
Sister Clark took on a service project six months ago without any idea of how much time and effort would be required.  Now, after six months of constant long-hours everyday work, she is nearly finished.  We delivered the first three of the books to Sister Dampt yesterday and she was extremely excited and pleased.  The rest of the seven Quiet Books should be finished this week.  Now, to help Sister Dapremont finish her two.  Wheeeww!
Tic, Tak, Toe Page - Learning to Think Ahead - Quiet Books
We are providing lots of pictures so the effort and time required might be appreciated.  The books turned out wonderfully and are very detailed and colorful.  Children can spend hours enjoying themselves while learning skills and developing abilities.  All while being quiet!!!  At least that is the hope.
Pick Apples Page - Learning to Snap - Quiet Books
Learning to snap, button, zip and velcro are included - something on nearly every page.  Some children may be introduced to sea, forest or barnyard animals for the first time. The hope is that the books be fun and educational at the same time.
Fishing Page - Learning Coordination and Patients - Quiet Books
While especially for children, we are hopeful that these Quiet Books encourage parents to spend time with their children as they help them learn about the world and develop skills.
Fishing Page - Happy to get Caught - Quiet Books
And then......these books are intended to be fun.  We are hopeful that children will find them interesting enough that they want to spend quiet and not-so quiet time with them.
Barn Page - Finger Puppets - Quiet Books
 We hope that parents are helped in their efforts to have quiet children at Church and in other appropriate places.  Adults might find themselves using these books as entertainment.
Farm Animals - Finger Puppets - Quiet Books
 The farm animals are cute and begged to be played with - each is a finger puppet.
Princess Double-Page - Memory Development and Fun - Quiet Books
 A total of fourteen different princesses are included.  Each with her unique dress and hair.  Of course children are free to create their own princess by mixing dresses and hair.
Princesses - Dress and Groom - Quiet Books
Princes Page - Another of 14 - Quiet Books
 Only three of the nine Quiet Books being made are for boys.   The boys books have a few unique pages including; the double Road and Signs pages, the Firehouse double-page and a couple of others involving trucks.
Road and Signs Double-Page - Imagination Development - Quiet Books
 The Road and Signs pages come with two vehicles which are currently parked in the garages.  The signs can be un-snapped and placed in different locations.
Roadway Page - Having Fun - Quiet Books

Firehouse Double-Page - Respect for Service Providers - Quiet Book
 The Firehouse page is one of our favorites.  We especially like the fire hats and the fire-dog.  Perhaps boys will be inspired as they play - our service providers deserve respect and perhaps this will help.
Firehouse - Dress and Grooming - Quiet Books
Firehouse - Only in Boys Book - Quiet Books
Firehouse Page - Fire dog - Quiet Books

Washing Laundry Page - Matching Exercise - Quiet Books
The Washing Laundry Page provides an opportunity to learn matching.  We hope it is colorful and interesting enough to encourage play and learning.
Washing Laundry Page - Quiet Books
Camping Page - Learn to Zip & Finger Puppets - Quiet Books
Hopefully the Camping Page will encourage boys and girls to want to discover the wonders of nature for themselves while teaching zipping and play with finger puppets.
Camping Page - Forest Animal Finger Puppets - Quiet Books
 All children need to learn to put on their shoes.  The Shoes Page will hopefully help with that.  One shoe is velcro closed, one button and one tied.  Learning to tie a shoe is often a challenge - now the chance to start early.
Shoes Page - Learn to Tie, Button and Velcro - Quiet Books

Cupcakes Double-Page - Learn to Create - Quiet Books
Creativity is the focus of the Cupcakes Page.  Children have a chance to put cupcakes in the oven, cook and decorate.  Complete with recipe book and utensils.  Girls and boys alike may be inspired to enjoy cooking as the grow older.
Cupcakes - Create - Quiet Books
Coq of the Week

This weeks coq has a hair-do reminiscent of punkish youth and a nearly closed-loop tail.  He is different and interesting as he perches above the Eglise Saint-Lambert in Le Mont, Belgium.   We found him while chasing down a referral.  Funny how the coqs are easier to find than those who might be interested in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our goal is to become as reliable and faithful as the coq.

Mosiah 3:8-9
     "And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary. And lo, He cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men even through faith on his name...."

As we celebrate Christmas, may we celebrate Christ's coming to earth that each of us might have salvation.  Christ was born a babe having the objective of providing each of us the opportunity of salvation.  It is thanks to Him that we can overcome the weaknesses of the flesh - death and sin - that we might live again in the presence of our Heavenly Father.  What a great and wondrous gift He gave!  The Earthly birth of our Lord and Savior is truly something to celebrate.  May we do so this Christmas Season and throughout the year.
Stained Glass Nativity - Eglise Notre-Dame des Recollets - Verviers, Belgium
Catholic churches can be a place to find inspiration during the Christmas Season.  We find inspiration in the stained glass nativities we find there - though probably only twenty or twenty five percent of the churches have such windows.  Nearly all the catholic churches display a nativity of some kind this time of year; there is inspiration to be found in visiting them also.  The nativities are void of the babe until Christmas day - a tradition we miss in the United States we think.  Our nativities seem to always include the babe regardless of when we display them.  Yet, Christ was born on Christmas day as was not to be found in the manger until that day.  A nice tradition we find here in France.

The fullness of spiritual truth is found only in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; however, other religions have some of the truth.  We should embrace inspiration from whatever source it may come - you too may find the nativities of the Catholic church inspiring.  We are grateful for the beautiful nativities we find in the churches here in France - they help us feel the true Spirit of Christmas.   May each of us have the Spirit of Christ during this wonderful time of year.
