24 : 25 {christmas eve}

On our way to the family Christmas Eve service.

Where Peter became a sheep.

And Hannah an angel.

For the live nativity scene.
(Will is not keen on being up front.)

Home for a cozy dinner.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds.

We sat and enjoyed the fire before my pastor-husband headed back to church.

And then I prepared for the morning. Mary and Joseph's long journey came to an end. The kids will find the stable full in the morning. Baby Jesus lying in the manger.

"If Christ had arrived with trumpets and lain in a cradle of gold,
his birth would have been a splendid affair.

But it would not be a comfort to me.

He was rather to lie in the lap of a poor maiden
and be thought of little significance in the eyes of the world.

Now I can come to him."

- Martin Luther, 1530, Sermon on Luke 2
