“I have noticed,” she said slowly, “that time does not really exist for mothers, with regard to their children. It does not matter greatly how old the child is – in the blink of an eye, the mother can see the child again as it was when it was born, when it learned to walk, as it was at any age – at any time, even when the child is fully grown and a parent itself.”
Voyager, Diana Gabaldon, pg 516
Read this this morning and almost started crying! (I think Christmas time makes me a little emotional!) I know all you mothers out there can relate! As I think about the Christ Child as a baby I can only imagine what his mother felt at the moment of his birth and through the years to follow!
I found this next image when I was searching for the other two I have inserted. I have this very nativity scene on my tree. I got it at a garage sale! I love it and thought I would share it with you! (Mine is missing some of the parts but it still shares the message of the Savior’s birth.)
May this be a very merry and blessed Christmas!
