Census Week


1.It was Census Week
2.The night of Christ’s Birth
3.Many trials all Inns were closed
4.One Inn was willing to use the Cave
5.Joseph and Mary were in the hay
6.Mary was with child
7.Time was nearing
8.Joseph, the Inn keeper, were preparing
9.The birth of the King of Kings
10.These walls were silent
11.Waiting for the special moment
12.When stones would cry out His name
13.This cave was Dry, Clean, Strong, and Thick
14.The Walls were as solid as God’s promise
15.Jesus was born to an orchestra of heavenly music
16.Jesus giggles at the Stone in the Cave
17.Blessed the Save and the World
