Wait– least you think I had forgotten…Just as promised the latest Short story… 🙂
Rex, age six, came in wearing my bathrobe and carrying a mop handle. He sat on the stool and looked at the flashlight. Nancy, age ten draped a sheet over her head, stood behind Rex and began, “ I’m Mary and this boy is Joseph. Usually in this play Joseph stands up and Mary sits down, but Mary sitting down is still taller than Joseph standing up so we thought it looked better this way.”
Enters Trudy, age four, at full run. There were pillowcases over her arms. She spread them wide and said only, “I’m an angel.”
Then came Ann, age eight. I knew she was a wise man because she had on her mother’s high heels and walked like she was a wise man riding a camel. On a pillow she carried three items, undoubtedly gold, frankincense, and myrrh. She walked across the room and announced, “I am all three wisemen. I bring precious gifts: gold, circumstance and mud.”
That was all. The play was over. I didn’t laugh. I prayed. How near the truth Ann was. We come at Christmas burdened down with gold, and the showy gifts and the tinsley tree. Under the circumstances we can do no other. And it really does seem a bit like mud when you think about it. But my children saw through the earthly and found the real reason for Christmas– to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
May you enjoy the spirit this weekend…
