this nativity was an early Christmas gift from the sweet hubs. as I set it out last night I couldn’t help but remember the actual meaning of Christmas. I’m so grateful for a God who loved us so much that He gave a physical, tangible representation of Himself. He walked the earth, suffered and LOVED THE UNLOVABLE so that we never had to feel alone in our suffering or not good enough. what an amazing gift, all wrapped in a tiny little baby. praying that somehow, amid all the shopping, baking, and wrapping madness you and I will have (and take) the opportunity to reflect on the beauty of the Christmas gift that makes this whole season worth celebrating.
