"And the angel said unto them, "Fear not!
For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy,
Which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David
A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,
Lying in a manger."
~ Lk 2, 10-12
I have a small one that belonged to my parents that was set out each year. The one above is one that I purchased at Walmart about 8 years ago. It wasn't exactly the kind that I wanted, but I liked it's attention to detail. I added a light to the back of it so that it illuminates Jesus on Christmas Eve. It's become a beautiful focal point to our holiday celebration.
My son loves to marvel at each of the pieces and ask about them. I love how very carefully he holds them in his tiny hands and looks in wonder at the manger scene. It's incredibly sweet!
