Humble beginnings

"...Lord, bless all who look upon this manger; may it remind us of the humble birth of Jesus, and raise up our thoughts to him, who is God-with-us and Savior of all, and who lives and reigns for ever and ever."

This project was 100% Andrew--I probably couldn't have resisted "improving" it if I had helped!

Adorable! It reminds me of my favorite manger scene: a looooong time ago, when we were in high school my brother's girlfriend has a little sister who was in kindergarten. She made my brother a present - a teeny tiny manger scene out of peanuts! :-) The very vest was the teeny little peanut Baby Jesus, wrapped in gauze! :-) So cute!

Here's to faith like a child! best wishes! - Kara
