And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. (Luke 2:7)
This nativity is so much more than a Christmas decoration. It is a physical reminder of the birth of Christ. Each year when my children help set up the nativity, I will be able to tell them the story of the birth of Jesus, and how His birth and resurrection has transformed our lives forever. This nativity will be loved and treasured in our family due to the message and hope that it represents. I am proud to one day pass this nativity down to our children and their children for generations to come. But more importantly, I am excited for the opportunity to share the love and grace of Jesus to all that will listen as we talk about our nativity from Bethlehem.
