In The Midst

My house smells like evergreen.102_3868

I have both Christmas trees lit, along with the white twinkle lights.

Candles burning, stockings hung.

My miniature, vintage, Putz village surrounded by fluffy snow on the mantle…

And in the midst of it all are my three nativity sets.

Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. Shepherds with animals. Wise men with gifts.

The baby…in the center of it all.

He who came, in the form of a child.

The Savior for all, wrapped in swaddling clothes.


11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. — Luke 2  KJV
