tender-December mercies

A Christmas miracle in our house is the continued existence of our sweet little nativity set. I loved it first as a wedding gift and I love it even more today. Merely a decade old, it shows the wear-and-tear that comes as an occupational hazard in our home, but each piece still stands humbly to remind us of what we are truly celebrating...

Sweet baby Jesus. Even with a tattered face, He is still adored as the centerpiece-

The dedicated shepherd has faithfully kept his flock-

The wise men came with presents in hand...

...lead by a blinded camel-

Oh, good morning Garret!

Ummm, sweetie-pie? Can you move so Mommy can take a picture?

Thanks Gare-bear. Isn't it delicious?

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Oooh, it's beautiful! I love that! I always celebrate the things that manage to survive my kids too, since so many things don't!

Hey! I think I have a pattern somewhere for that Nativity! Makes me want to hunt it down and make one. Maybe in July.
