HERE IS A MAP of the Holy Family's journey to Bethlehem and back to Nazareth. It was a great distance to travel with Joseph walking and Mary on a donkey... I just cannot imagine Mary Great with child and then just having had a child traveling this distance under the conditions. Amazing in itself!
I love vintage Postcards but especially like these that are images of what may have looked like Mary with the blessed Babe, Jesus.
In comparison, the smallest on the left is a prayer card and quite a different picture from the old vintage post cards.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year in 2011 and of course good health with many blessings. Take a little time each day to read scripture to learn as much as you can about our Lord. It will fill your heart to overflowing with love, charity and peacefulness.
Thank you for visiting and do come back again soon. See you in the New Year...
My heart to yours....
