After mass a couple weeks ago, there was a long table set up outside and a woman was selling items from her homeland, Bethlehem. There were many carved statues, crosses, and even some jewelry. The woman was telling me that in her area there are only 2% Christian right now, and she is trying to raise money to help build the church and keep it going. I thought, "to have something fromBethlehem would be so special." My friend, Anne, was with me and wanted to buy me something. She said I could pick anything I'd like. Now, these items were expensive, cause the wood was hand carved, so I went back and forth trying to choose my favorite one. I saw a statue that was beautiful and another one that I couldn't decide on. This one was $70, and the other was $30. Anne told me to get them both. She spent $100 on me that day - can you imagine? This one is mine, and the other I will give the baby as a Christmas present.
