I always leave a bit of Christmas out year round. It's a secret code for me. It's a tangible reminder to celebrate Christ year round. At least that is how it began. I no longer need a reminder; but it's a great conversation starter. ::grin:: Seriously. I can't tell you the number of grown women who work up the nerve to ask why I have a nativity out in June....and the kids never hesitate to ask. I love to explain. It's led to some interesting conversations.
In TX, I'd been leaving the complete Willow Tree Nativity out in our entertainment center. I simply don't have that much space here. I thought leaving just the Jesus/Joseph/Mary out would work....and the two angels mean various things as Willow Tree Angels do.....so I liked this.
Living all of life before the face of God...
