Who were the First Christmas Gift Givers?

The FIRST Gift bearers?

Surely first was Mary who said YES and brought her child  to us as her gift.

Next was Joseph who gave Mary and the child his gift of protection and shelter, the best he could find.

The donkey who offered his warm breath to warm the chld.

The Magi who brought gold, fnankencense, and myhr.

And the poor shepherds. The most they had to bring was their bedraggled sheep and smelly selves.

And they brought themselves.

That is all that we can bring as well.

We bring ourselves, somtimes bedraggled, sinful, wounded.

So come all ye faithful,

Come to Bethleham

and see!


Merry Christmas!
