The Story of Christmas

She gave birth to her firstborn son...


...and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no place for them in the inn.

Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.


Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth.


But a sword will pierce your own soul too.


Surely from now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.


What a beautiful narration of the Christmas miracle, as presented by the 72 three and four year olds at Mission Bell Preschool. Are you thinking I cried as I watched? You bet I did.
