I've been pondering that word nativity this week. It doesn't really pop up at any other time really when you think about it, just Christmas, yet we talk about ante-natal & post-natal quite often..then I saw the term "on this your natal day" on an old postcard the other day. Your natal day is your day of birth & the nativity is all the facts & details surrounding that new beginning. Now I'm just making this up a bit, but nativity is like the activity around the facts of your existence..born to whom, where, how etc. The nativity of the birth of Jesus of Nazereth is the one that is most memorable & holds the most power in all of history & is in fact a conspiracy of LOVE...
we join in the conspiracy..God's plan of hope..

All week I have been giggling about her sons "reddery" that goes with all the greenery.
Funny how once the red cherries arrived on the scene it really began to feel like Christmas. Since then I have been noticing just how many red things we have in New zealand clustered around this time.
Such a good time to be selling fruit & so nice to give some away too.
Oh, do pop in here for my apricot & honey balls..they are so easy & really useful around about now : )
with every blessing & muchxoxoxo
