Christmas Preparation Week - The Nativity

I must admit, I have an obsession with nativity scenes.  I love to decorate with nativity scenes, and I have many displayed throughout the house during the month of December.  I even have one that I leave up year-round in my office.  I do think that my obsession comes with a very reasonble explanation.

Simply put, they remind me of the "Reason for the Season".  I love to have reminders throughout the house of Christs' birth.  When I see them, I have a physical reminder of why we are celebrating.  It helps me focus, slow down and enjoy the little moments. 

As Christmas Day comes closer and closer and the prepartaions gain momentum, I pray for the peace of the Lord to fill your home and ours!

Beautiful...we need reminders of HIS presence, not our presents, as Mrs. B says. :)
