Monday afternoon, my son, Nathaniel, was very adamant about going in the attic. I asked him what did he need in the attic. He said, “oh, I just need to get something.” No matter what I said, it was obvious that he was going to be persistent, about getting in the attic, so I allowed him to go. While in the attic, he noticed the Christmas stuff, and asked if we could put the Christmas tree up. Well, I explained that it is a little early for that, since we haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, and he was agreeable. Yet, he continued to look around at the Christmas boxes, and noticed the little Nativity box. He said, “Oh, mama, can I put the Nativity scene out?” I thought to myself, “it is never too early to remember the baby Jesus’s birth.” I said, “Of course, you can!” He so excitedly brought it down out of the attic, and I allowed him to put it anywhere he wanted to. He was so happy to put out the little stable, Mary and Joseph, the wise men, and the baby Jesus. Then his brother,Nicholas, got excited about the Nativity going up and came up with some great suggestions on how to incorporate the STAR.
I talked to them about how wonderful it was to remember that very special night, and how the wise men brought their gifts to the new born King.
God, thank you that you allowed my sons to remind me,that it is never too early to remember that awesome night The King was born!
