As we are in that last minute rush to get things ready for Christmas, I hope we do not forget the reason for the season, and I hope each one of us will take time to reflect on the true gift of Christmas . . . the birth of the Savior. Today's picture shows Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. The picture was taken in the early 1900's but the picture probably reflects how the city looked as Mary and Joseph approached on a donkey some 2000 years ago.


  1. Very nice, thank you for sharing this. Have a blessed Christmas yourself, PJM.

  2. A beautiful photograph, with the gnarled old tree, the winter branches on the other side, and flowers in the foreground framing the ancient city. May you and the rest of the world finally share a blessed and peaceful season.
