We romanticize life and I’m not sure it serves us well. My early remembrances of the birth of Jesus sounded more like a Disney movie along the plotline of Cinderella than the story that I actually find in the scriptures. There was a new baby – who didn’t cry by the way! And although the Inn was full the stable sounded cool what with all the animals and such. Sort of like camping. And who could forget the gifts? And the star – that must have looked awesome!
Here’s a song that while beautiful also rings more true than my romantic notions about the birth of Jesus. Enjoy!
