library nativity scene

i walked into our library the other day and look what they had on  display ....


isn't it sweet?  one of our local seniors made it ... lots of knitting involved, with whimsical looking charactors ... but it gets the message across ...  dont'cha love small towns ... *smile*

Good news from heaven the angels bring
Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.

Dear Saija,
I'm a small town girl myself, and feel at home in any small town ll over the world.
Don't you just love it, when the librarian tells you about the new book, you most certainly would love to read, or the green grocer asking if you're home for vacation?
The Nativity Scene is absolutely gorgeous, and the lady must have spent hours and hours to knit it.
The good thing about knitting is that one can pray while knitting, so the product is filled with prayers when ready. I bet this is just this kind of knit craft.

In this PC world we live in today it's amazing how many places wouldn't display this!

I always find myself wondering what non-believers are really thinking that Christmas is all about? Maybe it's because as Christians it's SO obvious that it's about this very Nativity scene!

have a blessed Christmas!

This is the sweetest Nativity scene, and I'm so glad that like Connie says, it can still be displayed in your town. Small towns are wonderful, and have a very special feeling about them.
Hugs!!!

This is a work of art and much time was involved. Nice that your library has displayed it for the patrons to view.
