Oh, Holy Night.....

I've enjoyed looking at everyone's Nativity scenes. So peaceful. The one below is from my mother in law. It's by Thomas Kinkade so I love having pink little flowers around the manger and such. But I am reminded that the real nativity scene was probably not so beautiful and probably smelled... well, like a barn.

No matter what your Christmas looks like this year, even if it appears like everything that can go wrong has, remember the first Christmas. If I was in Mary's shoes, I would have been stressed and oh so cranky. How quick I would forget God's blessings. A census....really?! Who wants to travel a long ways on a donkey when you are majorly prego?! Not me. No room at the inn?! You've got to be kidding me! A barn?! I guess I don't have a choice! (My cue to pout)
But wow, when it seemed everything that could go wrong, did........... in reality everything went right and oh, what a holy night it was.

So if you're Christmas is far from Merry remember that it doesn't mean it's not perfect in God's eyes.
