let the children come

Children know instinctively the correct way to arrange a nativity scene: everyone should be crammed in as closely as possible to see the Baby. 


I hope you are finding time to frolic and play and laugh and sing this Christmas. 

Even the Prince of Heaven became a little child. 

I saw these two videos on Anne Voskamp's site yesterday. 
After dinner, I took my laptop into the dining room, dimmed the lights and watched them with my family. 


“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Mark 10:14-15
Love to all,


  1. Love the nativity scene, and your commentary on it. Kids know a lot of stuff I've forgotten as a grown-up.

    1. I love the nativity too, Tim. I'm grateful that it's resin and not breakable, though Baby Girl recently chewed a hand off the Angel of the Lord.

    2. And here I thought Angels were made of tougher stuff!
