Comfort and Joy

On Christmas Eve, a Merry Museworthy Christmas to my beloved readers. For all of you, warm wishes and hopes for happiness, good health, answered prayers, and revealed truths.

Perhaps one day I’ll get to Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Italy, where I can see in person Giotto’s celebrated frescoes. Here is a detail of “Nativity: Birth of Christ” from that 14th century masterwork.
Blessings …

    So Mary’s gone through the whole labor and childbirth experience — and Joseph is sitting there saying, “Am I tired!” But I’m sure he had gone through a long day, too.
    (I remember, after my son was born, I finally left the hospital and found that I had gotten a parking ticket.)
    Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, Claudia!

    The painting is beautiful, but as a guy who was there for the birth of both of my daughters, only a man could paint a scene in which the new mother looks so good compared to the “father.” It would take a miracle for Mary to look that great. Oh, wait …

      Haha! I like that. Mary certainly does look lovely and serene. But hey, it’s Mary 😉

      Hope you had a joyous holiday, Dave! And thanks for your comments.
