It has been busy here at the novitiate, besides the usual preparations at the house and the spiritual ones, well, some of us take the child within us out to play.
I had a box of clay for some other project I never really started, let alone finished. With it,I decided to make a nativity scene and prayed with the scriptures that speak of the nativity of Christ.
(I especially enjoyed making the crowns for the Three Kings and the Star of Bethlehem!)
"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Emmanuel." Isaiah 7:14
Here is my prayer turned into a nativity!
I can't wait for Christmas.
Come Jesus! Hurry! Come very soon!
