We're preparing for a display of nativity sets that belong to families in our church at the end of this month. I wanted to photograph a set for publicity purposes. I purchased this set last year at a thrift store and vaguely remembered that something was missing. As I unpacked it, I realize it's not someTHING. It's someONE. And Mary at that! Six camels (?) but no Mary. This afternoon I'm going to ceramics. My Christmas tree should be fired and ready to glue in the lightbulbs. I'll also ask the proprietor if she has a mold for the Mary to match this set. I sure hope so! I don't want anyTHING or anyONE to be missing.
I try to plan and prepare for the Christmas season so that noTHING is missing. Above all, I don't want anyONE to be overlooked.--particularly Him whose birth we celebrate!
