Nativity Conversations

December 22nd, 2014 by G.

My younger kids made a nativity set for me.

Joseph the Hut

It goes without saying that there’s Joseph on the left, Mary on the right, the swaddled Infant Jesus in the center, and a lamb poking its head in at the bottom. Not pictured: a second Infant Jesus they made for the set, for reasons best known to themselves.

It’s been a great conversation piece at work, where I have it displayed on my desk.

Joseph the Hut 2

I joked with my kids that I can tell they’re Star Wars bugs, since they gave me the only known nativity with Joseph the Hutt. Thankfully they’re young enough to take the joke in good part.

If only we knew – but we can imagine – what these statues looked like to their makers.

Behold the hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks to us,
And yet in moments dank and grim,
I wonder how we look to him.

Peace, peace, thou hippopotamus!
We really look all right to us,
As you no doubt delight the eye
Of other hippopotami.
