Today I started thinking about how much I would love to see the little kids from our church dressed like Mary, and Joseph, the wise men, and shepherds, and yes….maybe even some livestock. It wouldn’t have to be a big production, just a manger scene with scripture reading, and finished off with O come let us adore him. I can’t remember when I’ve seen anything like this. I love the modern church, but I don’t think you have to trade in ALL traditional aspects.
Oh well, maybe I will convince my kids to put on a play. The last time they did it, Isaiah was 2, and his only line was….NO ROOM ! He took it very seriously, and still remembers it.
Its not easy to get them to quiet their minds and think about that very first Christmas, there are so many distractions in our world today.
So Lord, I ask for quiet moments …to think.
and AHA moments….to realize.
