My Redheaded Baby Jesus

Ok.. I finally got my hands on some pictures from some special Christmas events.

This event in particular was the Children's Choir Christmas play at our church.  It followed the story of the people who caravanned with the Wise Men to see Immanuel, God with us.  

It was so sweet to see the children singing about their Savior.

Well unlike most Christmas pageants that show the Wise Men greeting Jesus the night he was born, this musical was more realistic with the Wise Men making it to the baby king when he was around two years old.  

So to make the play more realistic, the Children's Choir director asked us if Jude could portray Jesus and Lane and I would portray Joseph and Mary.  

And of course, I am partial, but I think Jude made an adorable "toddler" Jesus.  He was also very happy to play the part.  Whenever anyone would say the name Jesus, Jude would clap loudly.

It was truly a touching play and I actually shed tears as the children sang to the Lord:

"I bring an offering of worship to my King.
No one on Earth deserves the praises that I sing.
Jesus, may you receive the honor that you're due.
Oh Lord, I bring an offering to you."

A sweet add on to that story...  my sweet Lane sang that song as a solo the morning of the children's play, and a sweet little outspoken girl in the Children's Choir approached their director and told them Lane had stolen their song.  So, so cute.

The Christmas season may be gone, but our Savior, Jesus Christ will always be with us.
