Be Not Afraid of Change

Sitting in the living room yesterday, out of the corner of my eye, I caught something different.  There was a gathering going on.


It seems somebody's male child, who is taller than her and shall remain nameless,


Thought this was a more realistic representation


Of how it really was that holy night as opposed to how we tend to display it.

I think I might just leave it as is.  There is something that draws me about how they are all trying to get as close as possible to Jesus, to catch a glimpse of Him, and to worship Him that is speaking to me.

That is a beautiful Nativity set. I think that's probably more representative of how they were assembled, too!

I agree that this is a very beautiful Nativity set. And, yes, I think that everyone would be gathered round, eager for a glimpse of the Christ child. I know I would be!

I just love the things that children do. I agree with the set up.

Merry Christmas.

Oh, I LOVE the idea of this. Drawing as close as possible to worship the newborn Savior. And to think He is still worthy to draw that close even today...

I wonder how often my heart would truly be challenged and encouraged if I would pause to view Christ more often through the eyes of children.

Beautiful Susanne!

I love it. What a wonderful idea and I'm sure it was just like that.

I love your sweet puppy. He looks like a little snowman puppy.

Hope you had a beautiful Christmas and I wish you and yours a very happy new year.

That is a gorgeous nativity set! I agree...that is a more realistic representation. It always makes me feel kind of fake to spread the shepherds, kings, and even the animals out so we can see them all. I think they'd all be gathered around, too.
