Mary and Joseph

Today in church we were introduced to Mary & Joseph at the start of their Advent(ure) as they set out on the long journey to Bethlehem.

We pray that they will find safe passage on their journey.

A few years ago I knitted some Nativity sets. They were quite small, but I liked them a lot. My sister in Northern Ireland bought one set, another went to Scotland and one remained with me.

Imagine my surprise and delight when I found they were on a journey. 

What on earth does this do?”

Looking for transport for their journey, they come across something unusual.

    I share the wishes for a safe trip to this precious couple... and and am ridiculously excited to see their tale unfold here at Weighty Matters!!! Welcome back to Blogville. YAM xx

  2. That is so sweet. I wonder when the donkey will appear? (or did you not knit a donkey?)

  3. We can't wait to learn more about their journey. Do you think they will travel to Bethlehem by electric car?

  4. And suddenly I realize that I haven’t seen you here for a long time. It is only when you come back that I realize that you haven’t been here.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
