A wonderful friend surprised me with this beautifully hand-crafted nativity. Even though the base measures only 3 inches by 3 inches, the tiny piece of art embodies the “ESSENCE OF CHRISTMAS”. Mary, Joseph and the Christ Child; accompanied by the lamb representing the shepherds who were the first to receive the glorious announcement of Our Savior’s arrival! 

Can’t you just imagine the artist, hunched over the worktable in their dark studio, painstakingly but lovingly delineating the intricate details of the miniature faces?  

“Into the hearts of all who are skillful, I have put skill.” Exodus 31:6 

I’ll never be able to tell the skillful artist who made this charming nativity how much their work has touched my heart. The art may be small, but it carries a powerful and profound message. The Good Tidings of Great Joy that fill the darkness of our life with the bright, shining light of Jesus’ Love. 

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness; but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12 


I pray that Our Lord will fill your heart, and the hearts of your family, with Peace, Joy and the Light of His Love. Allowing it to shine on everyone around you, every single day of the New Year!

    Merry Christmas Mikki,

    I have enjoyed all of your YouTube videos and you have inspired me to try to paint in a more relaxed fashion. I have been painting over 30+ years and I have used all mediums but I like oil the most. Thanks again for your dedication to helping us artist to continue to paint. Hope you see more of your art in 2021.

    Happy New Year Mikki! We have two of your paintings and adore both of them and enjoy them every day!! We were looking at your books over Christmas and my husband found a print he would love to have a print of Spy Glass Hill on page 181! It might have been done by Jack!

    Best to you in 2021!
