My favorite tradition.
Going back to Bethlehem.
I mentioned, it is what inspired my Come Let Us Adore Him print.
For 25 years a local church has hosted this virtual experience of
going Back to Bethlehem.
But this year, they announced will be the last.
When we pulled up two nights ago.
The lines were longer than I'd ever seen.
All to see the newborn King.
My husband looked at me and I could tell he was leery about the long lines.
If I had said ok, we would have turned around and done something else.
But we didn't.
We stuck it out
and I'm so glad we did.
Because Christ is worth it.
And that wait in the cold,
that was nothing in comparison to what He has done for us.
And the memories this experience will leave for our children, they are priceless.
"On coming to the house they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshipped him."
