Blue Monday - Flight Into Egypt

Welcome to Blue Monday! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun.

For instructions, click here.

I ❤ to read your comments, so please leave one for me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you had a super Christmas with family and friends as you celebrated the birth of Jesus. We sure did! In church, I heard this: "Santa gives you what you want; Jesus gives you what you need."

Appropriate for today's Blue Monday is this figurine of Joesph and Mary, with Jesus as they fled into Egypt. Note the Blue headgear on Mary as well as the Blue trim of her dress. In addition, Joseph is wearing Blue. I love the urgency of their expressions as they flee the cruel King Herod (Matthew 2:16-18).



Happy Blue Monday,
stay warm, and have a
Happy New Year!

What a beautiful repersentation of blue today. This satute is gorgous..I have a small one simuliar to this but this one is so much more detailed. I love the Story of God protecting Jesus and sending them to Egypt almost as much as I love the story of his Birth.
Hope you have a wonderful day today.

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I am glad you are having a blessed and joyous Christmas season. I hope the new year will be days of good health and happiness.

Your figurine is so beautiful, and a wonderful representation.

Happy New Year, Sally!

Happy Blue Monday, Smiling Sally!
If everything happens for a reason, would that be because Jesus decided that we NEED that, good or bad (in our opinion "good" or "bad")?
Hmmm...:)

Becky K. said...

This is a part of the story that so often gets skipped over. I love this figurine. I am so glad you had a wonderful Christmas....we did too!
Thanks for your thoughtful wishes for our family!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I'm a bit late posting but here it is!!!

Your post says it all today. Christmas is the reason for the season and I count my blessings every day. Your nativity photo is beautiful.

The white Christmas in Franklin is causing us a delay getting home. We hope to leave JAX, tomorrow.

I trust your Christmas was wonderful with your family.
Love, Jeanne

barbarah said...

Love the blue there. I am not a fan of traveling myself, but the most miserable road trip has to have been better that trying to hold a child while riding a donkey for any length of time.

LV said...

I have enjoyed this past year with you and Blue Monday. I had a nice Christmas, but glad it is over. Thanks for always taking the time for visits and comments. Looking forward to another wonderful Blue Monday 2011.

Claudia@DipityRoad said...

Hi Sally
Its my first time joining with you.

Not a lot of blue -- a wee bit in one of the colorful photos.

Cold snow always gives a blue glow -- so the season flows into your idea.

I found out through our friend Beverly!

Enjoy your day!

Claudia

Oh Sally,, i'm soooooo VERY sorry, it just hit me, i never left a comment for you on BLUE Day...Ooooops. I really had planned on it and then one of our boys was in and out of the office ( Christmas break here) and I suppose I got all flustered.

Sending you much, much love and all good wishes for a wonderful 2011! Do you know I still have a gift for you on my coffee table??? It is growing roots! I've had it forever. When are we going to get together? When am I going to get over this bronchial thing? Hopefully SOON.
