This is an old Nativity which belonged to my precious Mother-in-law, "Miz Pearl" and I love to display it each year. As you can see the baby Jesus is missing and being Catholic we believe in keeping the babe out of the manger until Christmas Eve; symbolic of and as a reminder that during Advent and the days leading up to Christmas is a time for joyful preparation and eager anticipation for when He will return.
"When Christ entered our world, he didn't come to brighten our Decembers, but to transform our lives."~Rich Miller
Have a Wonderful week everyone and Be Safe! Mizmollye
