Innkeepers Key with Printable

This year my kiddo will be gifting these Innkeeper Keys to a few of the people that work at his school. A simple skeleton key ornament which represents the Innkeepers key. The Innkeeper in Luke 2 in the Bible that told Mary and Joseph that there was no room for them in the inn.

This idea came entirely from Amy at The Idea Room where she posted this last year. I simply created a small card for the key which you can print and use if you like.

"Each of us is an innkeeper who decides if there is room for Jesus." Neal A. Maxwell

The skeleton keys are from a local hardware store. We tied a small ribbon for a hanger. Then punched two small holes in the card on either side of the key and tied the key on with another ribbon. Our printable card below includes the poem below and the quote above by Neal A. Maxwell. Both of which were found on the Idea Room blog. Thanks Amy!

A Prayer For December:
Dearest God,
Please never let me
Crowd my life
Full to the brim.
So like the keeper of Bethlehem’s Inn,
I find I have no room for Him.
Instead, let my heart’s door
Be ever open,
Ready to welcome
The newborn King.
Let me offer the best I have
To Him
Who gives me everything.

Cathy! I love the printable card you made! It is so professional looking. That is one thing I am not very good at! I still have a couple of the keys left and think I just may print out your cards and give some away again this year! Thanks so much! And thanks for the kind words and the link! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
