"This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and
lying in a manger."
Today we went to see Ethan's Christmas play at school, and this was what the play was about, The birth of Christ. I am so thankful that I live in an area that has a principal that says, share Jesus until we have to stop! The play brought in Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. Ethan sang the second verse of Away in a Manger. Then the shepherds came in, a star, the angels and the wise men. After they were all in place two of the little angels came to the front and Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus also stood in front and the angels sang, "Happy Birthday Jesus". I just cried! A little boy then came front the back with a birthday cake and set it in front of them. It was incredible.
My prayer is that others who were there will see the read meaning of Christmas. That God sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. He sent Jesus by the way of Mary and placed Him in a manger for us! Remember that if it had only been you or me, God would have still sent His Son just for us.
Share the meaning of Christmas with others, and this year, buy a birthday cake for Jesus and sing to Him! This Christmas can mean more to you than ever before.
