a flowering faith

Have you ever seen anything sweeter? Bless the pre-school teacher who helped one of our toddlers make this flower pot creche, my favorite Christmas decoration ever. What courage it must have taken for Mary and Joseph to bundle up their tiny child and leave that manger, humble and jumbled as it was, to face the uncertainty ahead. I remember being reluctant to leave the peace and security of the hospital maternity floor after giving birth, in no hurry to re-engage with the world outside our blessed threesome. But life beckons and we must respond. Each and every day. Thank heaven there are stars that light the way.
