Taking Baby Jesus Out of the Manger by April Rodgers
Christmastime is here! One by one the boxes come out of the attic and treasures from years past are rediscovered. A handmade ornament here. A special candy dish there. A picture of your child screaming while sitting on Santa-from-the-Mall’s lap. Oh, the memories.One thing that our family likes to collect is nativities. We have several from around the world: Peru, Israel, and I even brought back one from El Salvador this year. We have full sets from Willow Tree and Fontanini. We have big ones and small ones. Like I said, it’s our thing.
As I carefully unwrapped one manger scene to display, I was thinking of the sweet baby Jesus asleep on the hay and what an amazing gift it is that heaven came down to create this scene. Everything is so serene, so tender and mild.
But I wonder, how content are we to let Jesus stay in the manger?

I am also planning to join April in her in her Christmas challenge to take baby Jesus out of the manger this Christmas and make Him Lord of my life. I hope you will join in too. What a great way to celebrate the gift of our savior this Christmas season!
