what I want

I have wanted this for YEARS.
Each year, the closer we get to Christmas the more often I look at it and wish for it...
Maybe next year I will actually plan for it.

I think what I really want is what it represents in my heart.
My desire grows each year for the simple devotion depicted in this nativity set...
the hearts laid bare...
the unexplainable mystery of their featureless faces.

I want what I "sense" was present with them as they experienced "God among us" in those first moments of wonder, agony, struggle, joy and the later days of delight, sorrow, pain, expectancy, confusion, doubt.

I want it to be real.

(And, I'd really like to have the nativity set too!)
