Swaddling Clothes

The Bible says

that Mary wrapped

her babe in swaddling clothes –

strips of cloth

wound ’round and ’round

his shoulders to his toes.

This makes me think of Christmas gifts

kids often get from grandmas,

but we don’t call them swaddling clothes

we call ’em flannel pajamas.



Do you have fond memories of  the night of Christ’s birth?

hugs n’ blessing to all of you who do & may you sleep tight!


“She brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes…” Luke2:7

    1. Indeed, she was cute as a button the entire visit! Missing her but wrapping up with wonderful memories to keep our hearts warm! PS-She adored her flannel nightgown and I needed to rewash it for several “requested” wears – reminded me of all the comfy nightgowns sewn lovingly from Gram that I wore, those many years ago!

  2. Lovely blog entry. Beautiful photos. interesting thought for me flannette pyjamas. When my baby was born on 19th December it was so hot most of the babies were dressed only in nappies. Often pretty colours. I was still in hospital on Christ5mas Eve (I had a caesarian). Babies on that wonderful night of memories were in cribs beautifully decorated but very little clothing on. Christmas carols and the wonder of Christmas was very evident in that nursery with new Mums and babies. .

  3. What a beautiful memory Faye! A Christmas baby is a very special baby for certain! A stark difference from our Christmas temperatures here in the Northeast part of the USA though, giggles!! Thank you for sharing such vivid memories with me – I loved ‘walking through’ the nursery with your lovingly described visuals! Hugs n’ blessings!
