A Nativity Scene Makes its Appearance During Lent

I am having a show of my poppets on Arts on the Main in Clifton Springs.  The other day we gathered family together to go see it.  My daughter- in- law also has cute pieces in.  Her's are portraits of her daughter's toys.  I made people into poppets and she made toys into people-like characters.
The point of this story is my sin.  I know you might be saying "how is this blog entry headed that way?"  One of my poppets is the first love of mine from high school.  I researched his work and he wrote some of the material for Sponge Bob Square Pants.  The episode was The Great Snail Race.  It had a bad review and I shared this with some people at the show.  I realized afterward, "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all."  That was a favorite quote of my father's.  It was wrong to slam him.

Since I felt guilty, I thought how can I make it up to Joe?  I have a journal and since he is an actor I made a journal entry of reparations....using his career choice.

I love St. Francis and he is the source of The Nativity.  In Greccio Italy he created

the first nativity scene with real people in 1223.  I visited there in 2004 and purchased a little plastic sculpture for my daughter.  There is a beautiful church nestled in the forest on a hillside that is dedicated to the Nativity.

Joe and Amy Maria!  It works- without even new character names.  Here Joe is polishing the apple on his robe before he gives it to the Donkey.  Joseph with two apples is legendary.  Who is playing Jesus?  I guess it is Jesus  himself as I know no newborns.  Thanks baby Jesus for helping me come to terms with my sinfulness!  Incidentally although he was my first love we were never more than acquaintances.
