Scavenger Hunt Sunday–Pictures, Poems, and Thoughts on the Nativity Scene

I just counted and this will be my 35th Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

Less is more

Sometimes the most simple things are the most amazing. After having my dslr for a year, I finally bought myself a new lens! I’m thrilled with its capabilities and am so exited that I finally went ahead and bought the darn thing so I can capture God’s simple wonders, like the moon.

Nativity

We have multiple nativity sets at our house. Unfortunately, our dog has a craving for Jesus because he has eaten all of the Jesus’ figures from our various sets. I even tried to mix and match sets to have a full nativity scene, but in everyone, Jesus was missing. That holy dog!

Even though I don’t have an actual nativity scene shot, what I do have is very special. Have you ever noticed that the sunsets in December are remarkable? I had to pull off the side of the road to take this shot and the thought crossed my mind that perhaps, this is what Mary and Joseph’s trek looked like as they were walking to Bethlehem in preparation for the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ. It’s so comforting to know that this could’ve been a very similar backdrop over 2000 years ago; how things are so very different, yet still so the same. Profound!
