Worship the King

Christmas cards depicting the night Christ was born typically include Mary, Joseph, the baby Jesus, shepherds, a smattering of farm animals, and the Magi, who we refer to as the “three wise men.” Those travelers from the east, however, didn’t actually come until later — probably not until Jesus was a toddler.

A Lesson in Perseverance… from a Yorkie
