Here are some of the highlights from our last couple of weeks. Since I am a day late, I won’t worry about being wordless – LOL.
Our church did “A Walk Through Bethlehem” that was a great hands-on experience. We got to see pictures from Palestine and learned about the manger, we learned about pottery, baking, spices, woodworking, cooking, weaving, wine-making, games, and music that were contemporary to Jesus’ birth. My two favorites were the spices, because it was neat to see that we still use many of them that are mentioned in the bible; and the donkeys because it really brought a vivid picture of Mary to mind. I have traveled in the last week of pregnancy – can’t imagine making that journey on a donkey.
