The Good Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. –Psalm 23:1

Softly shushes me and
Holds me close. Comforting
Even as I am allowed to grieve.
Perhaps this Person knows
How it is to grieve and that
Eventually it all needs to be
Released so that I can
Deal with this pain.
 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me. –Psalm 23:4

Silent Night, Halo Night

My eldest nephew has decided to add to the nativity set that I put out this year. He loves to add to things and make them a little bit more than they were before without actually overdoing it too much. (Most of the time, he can get pretty carried away.)

This year he worked for a week making sure that everything was just so for his contribution. It certainly livened up the piano where everything is set up.

Here’s the makeup of our nativity this year:

1 plastic baby in a manger

1 porcelain wise man

2 plaster wise men

1 plaster Mary and Joseph

4 plaster animals

1 plaster shepherd

4-5 Lego Halo guys placed strategically to protect the group from the soldiers of Herod out looking for the newborn Savior
