Manger Scene Portraits

text.jpg

For all the mommies who prefer NOT to have a big man in a red suit in your child's Christmas pictures…. this one's for you. ***PLEASE READ IN ENTIRETY FOR ALL THE DETAILS*** It's the "idea" of the manger. Not the exactness. But a childlike perception of it, perhaps.

After all, this is the message of the season.

The manger.

"To an open house in the evening

Home shall men come,

To an older place that Eden

And a taller town than Rome.

To the end of the way of the wandering star,

To the things that cannot be and that are,

To the place where God was homeless

And all men are at home."

-G.K. Chesterton
