Thinking past the fairytale

Posted on Updated on



Day 5: Create straw for the donkey to lay on  If anyone has noticed…many a nativity are created with “fairytales” in mind. Their pretty, tell a pretty little story.  It’s hard to connect with the birth of our Lord seeing little twinkling stars and a clean stable.  And this nativity keeps this in mind. Today is the day you will begin to realize Jesus’ birth happened in a real place. You are asked to make something-actually physically do something. Not only that–but you are asked to make something to remind you that this story happened in a real place, where donkeys needed a warm spot to lay down in a smelly, possibly cold and damp stable.

By the way–here’s one my nativity to prove my “fairytale” point 🙂
