Nativity Scene

The nativity scene is my very favorite. The stable with animals remind us that there was no room for them in the inn. The angel announced the birth while shepherds came in from fields to see the Christ child. Wise men brought gold, frankincense, and mur to Jesus-the King of Kings. Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus-Joseph and Mary had no other place for Him but a small manger. Placing a manger scene in our homes and/or churches at Christmastime focuses our minds on celebrating Jesus and His birth.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you... Luke 2:11
