Talking Nativity

Posted by John Lindsay on 6th December 2011 in Faith-based Writers
The Wrong Star     I thought he was with you.

Nativity displays can be like blended families. The surviving pieces in our collection are completely valueless. But, for some strange reason, after every season they continue to be wrapped in tissue and placed somewhat carefully back into their war-torn cardboard boxes.

Our mismatched set has been passed down from several sources for over a century. Some pieces are cheap plastic and others are chipped porcelain. I’m sure all of them meant something special to someone at some time, and, perhaps, that’s why we can’t let them go. Since no one’s around to tell us the history of each piece, I thought it might be interesting to let them speak for themselves.

Feel free to suggest dialogue of your own!

    Sheep: (to cow) Don’t they make belts out of you?

    Write more, that’s all I have to say. You clearly know what you’re talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read? LIKE AN EBOOK on Consider the Stars » Blog Archive » Talking Nativity!

    Hi, I really like your weblog. Is there some thing I can do to receive updates like a subscription or some thing? I am sorry I am not acquainted with RSS?

    I don’t know the difference between RSS feed and dog food. I’d be happy to put you on my very small email list and let you know if I post something inspired if that all right with you.
