This Digital Nativity Story Brought us Joy on Christmas
THE DIGITAL STORY OF THE NATIVITY
Uploaded by ExcentricPT. - Sitcom, sketch, and standup comedy videos.
We were late for church tonight.
We thought Mass started at 4:30.
We were ready to go, as per The Agronomist's orders, out the door at 4:00pm.
As we were getting our coats The Agronomist looked at our tickets.
Then he looked up and said, this says 4:00pm.
Our church is full at Christmas.
Regular parishioners can pick up tickets at mass in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
We knew there would be no room at the inn.
But we decided to go knock on the door anyway.
We were told there was standing room only.
With a few tears from youngest we decided to give it a try.
We found a wall at the back, youngest was still in tears, not happy about the situation at all.
A lovely friend and usher, looked at us shook his head and said, "come with me."
He had found a seat for five bums and we enjoyed a lovely service.
There is one thing I am certain of; our little mishap was far less traumatizing than Mary's experience on this night so long ago.
We've enjoyed a wonderful evening with many friends.
We've blown out some candles and sang Happy Birthday baby Jesus.
A few gifts have been unwrapped from under the tree.
We are full.
Arthur is playing on the computer in the background, while The Agronomist is clinking dishes in the kitchen.
Middlest is trying to find her breath and we've sat outside in the cold to try and relieve her asthma.
Eldest is googling whether or not she can sleep lying down.
And I am writing this note so that I do not forget how blessed I am on this particular evening.
We laughed with friends while watching the above modern day digital story of the Nativity.
When you have two minutes.
It is a lovely story.
Tomorrow is Turkey day,
I plan on being stuffed : )
