This Year's Creche

Every year, I write a post about the creche Jordan puts together for our home. Since he was four years old, Jordan has set up the manger scene for us. We've had some interesting ones.

This year has another unusual narrative.

Mary and Joseph are in a small camp on one side of the room. They have lost the baby Jesus and are discussing how best to look for him.

Meanwhile, the manger is on the roof of the stable on the other side of the other side of the room. The donkey and the angels know where Jesus will be Christmas morning and are set to look after him, until his parents find him.

My son is definitely imaginative. This isn't the biblical Christmas narrative.

Then again, maybe what we should be doing this season is looking for the baby. Looking for Jesus.

A Very Merry Christmas 
to You and Yours!!
