I have been blessed to find a place filled with beautiful crafts and lovely sisters. These sisters, of the Holy Nativity Convent in Brookline, Massachusetts, are the creators of this beautiful beeswax candle. Take a look at their shop, and also visit an amazing blog post on the Susan Branch blog, that tells the story of the ladies with great photographs included.
The Holy Nativity Convent
The merchandise the sisters sell through the convent arrives quickly and perfectly packed. The candle is beautiful, smells lovely as only natural beeswax can, and is a perfect gift for any time of the year.

“You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!” See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” ~Isaiah 40:9-11
