Coming to Town

Children of our culture have some version of this image fixed in their dreams on this Christmas Eve night.

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

Merry Christmas to all!

Wishing you, Chris and your entire family blessings for this Christmas.
Hugs to Dini and the feline of the house.
The true meaning has become lost in wrapping paper and tape.
