Church Service Words Year 3/4

 

Wednesday 25th December

 

Dear Diary,

 

Luckily, a really kind innkeeper let us stay in his stable; he clearly saw how desperate we were. It is not much but we are really grateful we have somewhere to stay for the night, sheltered from the wind and rain. Thank goodness we found somewhere to rest in time because tonight was the night, the night Jesus was born. A little while after Jesus had been born we heard knocking on the wooden gate, it was three shepherds and we welcomed them in.

 

Soon after the arrival of the shepherds there came, some peculiar men and they all started to gaze at baby Jesus and I felt like the luckiest woman in the whole wide world.

 

Just like the shepherds before them, they too were excited to meet baby Jesus. I was astonished to see that the men brought very expensive gifts too: gold, myrrh and frankincense. I thought it was very generous and I am glad to show my beautiful baby boy, king of the world.

 

That is all from me,

 

Mary

 

 

Dear Diary,

I know I haven’t written in a while but it’s because Joseph and I have been setting up for the new arrival. Sadly, we received news from King Herod saying we have to leave Nazareth and go to Bethlehem to pay taxes. Luckily one of my friends has lent us his donkey for the long, long journey. Although I’m grateful for the donkey it certainly won’t be the most comfortable ride and I can’t help but feel nervous that baby Jesus will be born before we reach our destination. Hopefully we’ll be lucky and get there in time!

All for now,

Mary

 

 

Dear Diary,

So far this tiring, long journey has been so hard for me and Joseph. We have walked over high mountains, waded across deep rivers and trekked across scorching deserts. Finally we were near the end of this difficult, long journey so we started looking for an inn to stay in. However, there is no room anywhere and every inn in town is packed because so many people have been forced to travel to Bethlehem to pay these ridiculous taxes. I am trying to stay positive but everything seems to be going wrong.

 

All for now,

Mary
