A man was standing over his baby's crib, intently staring. His wife entered the room and watched in silence. She saw in her husband's face a wide range of emotions: wonder, doubt, admiration.
Deeply touched, she put her arm around him and, with eyes glistening and voice trembling, said, "A penny for you thoughts." Unhesitatingly, he blurted out: "For the life of me, I can't see how anybody can make a crib like that for $89.95."
Agog over the manger, amiss to the baby in the manger.
It's time to trust the mystery in the manger.
