Jesus for Children~A Trilogy of Short Stories

includes the story

Happy Birthday Precious Lamb
 
"Over the past weeks, I have been writing a memoir of your birth. As if it were yesterday, those memories remain indelibly impressed in my mind and burned into my heart.."
 
Story based on Bible verse Micah 5:2
"But you Bethlehem, Ephrathah, though you are small amongst the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."   
 
As Jesus' 33rd birthday approaches, His mother wants to give Him the perfect gift when He returns home to Nazareth. Mary lovingly prepares a memoir of His birth, a gift she knows He will surely cherish.  Her magnificent journal tells the beautiful story of the events leading up to His birth, the birth of the Redeemer, Christ, in stunning and unforgettable detail.
 
"A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest." ~ C.S. Lewis
