MARY'S BABY BOY

BAYI LAKI – LAKI MARIA
MARY’S BABY BOY

Dahulu kala, Kaisar Romawi, Agustus, mengadakan sensus penduduk. Ia menyuruh tiap orang kembali ke tempat asal keluarganya untuk dihitung. Diantara mereka yang pulang ke Betlehem, kota terpencil di wilayah kekaisaran, ada Maria dan Yusuf. Maria sedang menunggu Bayinya lahir. Saat tiba di Betlehem, Anak laki – laki Maria lahir. Mereka menamai-Nya Yesus. Maria membungkus Bayinya dengan kain dan membaringkan-Nya di atas jerami lembut di palungan (A long time ago, the Roman emperor, Augustus, called for a census. He sent everyone back to the place where their family came from to be counted. Among the people who went to Betlehem, in a tiny corner of the empire, were Mary and Joseph. Mary was expecting a baby, and while she was in Betlehem. Mary’s Baby son was born. They called Him Jesus. Mary wrapped him in strips of clotch and made a bed for Him among the soft hay in a manger);  

Malam itu, ada sekelompok gembala menjaga domba – dombanya di padang rumput. Tiba – tiba muncullah para malaikat di hadapan mereka, mengabarkan kelahiran Juruselamat yang membawa damai bagi dunia. Para gembala menjumpai Seorang Bayi yang terbungkus kain lampin, seperti kata malaikat. Lalu, mereka kembali menjaga dombanya sambil memuji Allah atas semua yang mereka lihat dan dengar (That night there were sheperds out in the fields, looking after their sheep. Angels appeared to them. announcing the birth of a Saviour who would bring peace to the world. The shepherds found the baby wrapped in strips of clotch, just as the angel had told them. Then they returned to their sheep, thanking God for all they had seen and heard);
