More Than A Manger

This cost me just a dollar or at the most two, yet it is worth more to me than money.  It represents everything Jesus came to do and everything He did . . . for me.  When I hold it in my hand, the entire circular base of the basket depicts all of the characters in the Bible story we heard a day or two ago.  The scented dried florals in it remind me of both the gifts brought to Him at Epiphany and the perfume later used to wash His feet.  The handle looks, to me, like a crown of thorns which, we know all too well, was later placed on His head as He was mocked and killed for each one of us.  They say a baby changes everything . . . this one did.
