I now interrupt your pumpkin spice latte to bring you good tidings, cheer and a Christmas message that can’t wait until December.
In all honesty, I don’t like rushing (or ridiculously extending) the Christmas season. However, you’ll want this message before you get your Christmas decorations down from the attic.
Last year around this time, I started searching for new Christmas ornaments. I wanted our Christmas decorations to reflect, well, Christ. I found exactly what I was looking for when I came across the Ever Thine Home website.
Ever Thine Home is the home decorating offshoot of the marriage and family ministry, FamilyLife, led by Dennis and Barbara Rainey.
In their Christmas Collection, Ever Thine Home offers three sets of Adornament ornaments that include Jesus’ names throughout the Bible. The ornaments are beautifully crafted in a neutral metallic that will easily harmonize with your current ornament collection.
Each set includes seven ornaments and a read-aloud book with stories and the meaning behind each name. What a great way to keep the focus on Christ this Christmas.
And look at these beauties!

I’ve always loved decorating for Christmas. But these ornaments are more than just decorations, they are signs of adoration and shouts proclamation for the One whom we are celebrating. And they tell the story of our Savior — who was and is and is to come.
Ah, the weary world rejoices.
