Opa’s Manger

12_24_10

My grandfather made many of these little stables, but this is the last
one he made many years ago. He never owned power tools, and everything
was made by hand. Each Christmas setting it up was just as exciting for
us as decorating the tree. It is hard to believe that my grandchildren
can still enjoy the work made by the hands of their great-great
grandfather.

“And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:12
