|Joybug with the sleeping Baby Jesus (Skipper)|
This year was Skipper's turn.
Today the children took part in the Christmas play at Holy Cross Lutheran church in Burrumbuttock. Tiger and Princess read parts for puppets, Tank played a wonderful shepherd, The Man was an amazing wise man and Joybug chose to be the star.
|Surrounded by adoring children...and crowns cast down...|
quite theologically appropriate!
It was sleep time, so a gentle wrap and a dummy was all that was needed. He was surrounded by the little children taking his hand and all obviously in love with him...and so he fell fast asleep.
The adults were more than just a bit impressed. His timing...impeccable.
|Afterwards Tiger and Princess put on some dress ups |
for a family nativity scene
|Our children, like all the children we know, are in love with|
babies...particularly this one.
Jesus is the gift.
Given FOR YOU.
Not to those people over there, for YOU.
To paraphrase Martin Luther's words: It doesn't matter if Jesus came into the world if he didn't come for you.
