The Nativity: Mary


My heart is filled with peace
I know's there's a plan
We'll find our way home
as soon as we can.

For now I'm content
to follow his lead
to Bethlehem's door.
God's Voice I will heed.

When my child is born,
the world will know
Earth is his calling,
but Heaven's His home.

This year I decided to not just put our nativity out as a decorations, but to really talk about each piece. I found this book at the library called The Twelve Prayers of Christmas by Candy Chand. So for the next 12 days leading up to the day before Christmas eve we are setting out a new piece of the nativity each night and reading the poem that coincides with it. I think this will be a nice way to teach Miss Priss and Bubba what Christmas is really about and to let them know that when Christ was born we truly were given such an amazing gift. We were given something that can never be bought. When Christ was born it provided a way. He volunteered to come to earth to die for us. He wanted to be our savior, so we could return to live with our Father in Heaven again. I am thankful or that love and thankful for his amazing birth.
