May Love Abound

With this nativity, I wanted to capture the love that this family unit had. I often think of Joseph's gentle heart and complete faith. He loved the Christ child as if he were his own. He was the baby's and Mary's protector. How tender the feelings that were surely passed during quiet moments following the Saviour's birth.

Mary and Jesus

As I have created these nativities, I have pondered on my relationships with my own children and the tender moments I shared with them when they were infants. It has given me new insight into Mary's love for our Saviour. I tried to capture that precious moment between mother and infant in the following nativity, simple entitled, "Mary and Jesus".

Unto us a child is born...

Here is the third in my series of nativities for this year. Meg Crawford (a fellow quiller) helped me identify a really great perspective on this one. She said, " Joseph looks good. In this one he seems to be thinking about the future for all of them; in the others he seems focussed on caring for Mary and the Baby Jesus."

And His name shall be called Wonderful...

Here's the second in this year's series of nativities. I love this one especially for the tenderness Joseph is showing to Mary and baby Jesus. I also love how Jesus is grasping Mary's finger. I remember when my newborns did that and I just melted.

Keeping Christ in Christmas

It's that time of year again! I love Christmas. It's my favorite time of the year. This year I'm once again making nativities as gifts. This time, I will have four total when I'm all done. Here's the first completed one:
