Merry Christmas

I hope the real stable was as cozy as this looks. I love how even the animals seem hushed and attentive. When I think that even birds and baby chicks, as well as donkeys, sheep, and goats, were privileged to witness the birth of Christ, it's a reminder that no creature on earth can be dismissed as insignificant. We have no idea what destiny may be assigned to such as these.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

I am sure the Christ-child radiated unimaginable warmth. All creation recognizes the Mystery ... and yes to the role even the most lowly play. Wishing you a most blessed Christmas!

Hmmmm, I like the idea of a cozy stable and I am certain it felt like shelter compared to outdoors.But I do think our cards and images tend to glamorize it to fit American sensibilities.

Hadn't really considered whether the Christ-child brought actual physical warmth to the situation. I'll be thinking about that.

It is a vision of HOME, the real home where it is warm and you are taken in and affirmed.
