tell the special story
A long time ago, in a land far away, there lived a man named Joseph and a woman named Mary. They loved each other very much. One day they left on a journey with their donkey. They traveled up and down and all around. Mary told Joseph it was time to stop, so they found a place to stay. They had a baby boy and named him Jesus. An angel sang when the baby was born "Hallelujah, hallelujah, a son is born". Shepherds were out in the fields nearby, and when they heard the angel, they went to find the baby. There was also a star in the sky, and the magi saw it and started their journey. They traveled up and down and all around. They brought the baby very special gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. He was a very special baby.
Fyn loves to hear the advent story, simplified for a two year old's attention span. He holds the baby and puts it out at the right time, and holds the angel for the singing. Somehow, in his ears, it sounds like "collie-lola". I love that!
Enjoy your family, the special traditions and the love that's all around!
