A Nativity ~ True Meaning of Giving!!

image courtesy of The Beautiful Life blog
I had planned on sharing images of the Nativity I had purchased, unfortunately my camera was not cooperating, so I borrowed the image from my friend Ruth over at The Beautiful Life. These pieces really are a work of art. The detail exquisite, pictures truly do not do these pieces justice. Mr. G. could not help himself, when are Nativity first arrived ~ he remains in awe of the precision in the details.

Of all the Nativity scenes I have, this one though the newest ~ for me is filled with magic. It start out in raw materials in Uganda ; each piece delicately and lovely created by caring human hands. When my sets (yes I had to order 2... something just told me I would want to share this treasure with someone special) it was a wonderful feeling to know that I was holding in my hand a unique one of a kind made with love and care by human hands piece. But more than that through my treasure I was helping these women in Uganda to become self reliant.

For full details please visit Ruth at The Beautiful Life  you will not only want to help, but you really will want to own a special gift, that truly reflects the meaning of giving and helping others, especially at this time of the year.

  2. Mr. G is absolutely right ~ What an amazing Nativity. It is so rare these days to find something actually made by a human ~ I would love to see how you display it when your camera is treating you better. Have a wonderful night my friend.

  9. How beautiful and what a wonderful cause! We have a sweet little nativity set that my mom gave me for my first apartment. It was made by missionary nuns in Guatemala. Unfortunately, last year our dog chewed on the baby Jesus (yeah, I laugh when I say it out loud, too) and he's worse for wear. So, we may need to shop for another set and let that one be displayed in one of the kids' rooms. :)
