Today has been a busy day for me with various trips here and there. On one of those, I saw a different nativity scene in a churchyard.
It was cut from white boards or else cut and painted white. In the distance was the stable and the animals in it. Set maybe 75 feet away was a donkey with Mary on it and Joseph leading it to Bethlehem.
I’ve read of families who do this when they set up their nativity scenes, moving Mary and Joseph closer each day, but this was the first time I’ve seen one outside. I must make a point of going by again in a day or two to see if Joseph and Mary have gotten closer to Bethlehem.
