For our ward's Relief Society Christmas program, I had the pleasure of being asked to play the part of Mary for the vignette that was put together. The woman who was in charge did an incredible job and it was a really spiritual experience for everyone.
Joseph did an absolutely amazing job for his part.
During our practice the day before, we used a baby doll and were planning on using it for the actual performance, but as we walked in to get in place, the director whispered to me that there was actually going to be a live baby Jesus instead. It made all the difference! He was so precious, being just a couple of weeks old.
I was so honored to be a part of this group and study just a little bit about Mary and her admirable situation. It's really amazing how Heavenly Father knows just what you need, even if it's not quite what you expected. And I thought this was the perfect way to usher in the Christmas week!
