The other day I had a little rant about Christmas songs that have nothing to do with Christmas, maybe I am a bit of an old curmudgeon, but I suspect it has more to do with just how many of these I end up playing each year. So far I have had five seasonal performances and there are still three to go, indeed this week I will be out every evening, mostly rehearsing or playing. With all of this it is quite easy to forget exactly what it is that I am celebrating.
So behind today's door we have a couple of nativity scenes, to remind us about just how the creator of all decided to enter into creation. I like this one as it shows the exhaustion of Mary, the awesome watchfulness of Joseph, no cute sheep, no angels, just two tiered people and baby.
