Live Nativity - The Evening of December 10

My parents had the opportunity to host a beautiful live nativity for our LDS church behind their home. Just beyond the patio and waterfall is where this marvelous activity took place. Members took a small winding path leading to the actual manger scene. Scriptures from Luke marked the path along with sheep and goats (all live stock). The words shined brightly with each spotlight drawing attention to the glorious story of old.
What a humbing experience to stand and witness a resemblence of the circumstances surrounding the evening of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The lighted star above the stable led the wisemen and shepherds to the new born infant.
This sweet little donkey was amongst the manger with Joseph and Mary.
Thank you to the Canyon Estates activity committee for reminding us the tree meaning of Christmas and for letting our family come and participate. It was a spirtitually uplighting event and one that we will remember for a long time.

I've never had the opportunity to see a live nativity, but it would be a wonderful experience! It is hard to imagine how humble our Savior's entrance was to this world.
