Remember Missing Baby Jesus?

Remember last year when I wrote about how fitting it was that our baby Jesus went missing? Well I couldn't take it anymore and I decided upon myself to make another one. I was tired of looking at an empty "Jesus-less" manger. I know its simple and silly but I was tired of it! 

I can go into deep thoughts and reflect even more on what that means for me personally, in regards to my last post but I'll spare you that (for now) and just post the pics of the baby Jesus I sculpted.

reflections in Snow

"distraught" by laura yumang(link)
I think about the future; I live in the past; I dislike the present. Don't want to forget the past, can't wait for tomorrow but have a hard time living in today.
I want to change but I don't know how.

Waking up seeing the undisturbed snow reminded me that as the new year comes, its a clean slate. Time to restart and make new.

Seeing the etching (pictured right) reminded me that the only way through the shit is to look up, theres the solution to the maze we call life.

As the snow melts it reveals the same things that were there before. I hope as 2011 comes to a close I'm not left with the same things poking through that are poking through this year. Here's to a new year.
