I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! We had a chill holiday. Unfortunately Jason was pretty sick with a fever and cough so that ended up changing out plans. We stayed at home for Christmas Eve and most of Christmas Day, just the two of us and our kitty. We missed being with our families but at the same time it was kind of nice to be just the two of us snuggled on the couch in front of our Christmas tree instead of running around town.
This year as we think about the Christmas season and the miracle of Christ, of course we have spent a lot of time being grateful and thinking of our daughters.
We haven’t met our daughters yet. But we are picturing them, small and perfect and absolutely beautiful. I am sure we will be in awe when we meet them. Every child is a miracle, but for us especially we have no doubt that our babies are a gift directly from God and they could not be ours without His mercy.
Now, can you imagine looking at such a tiny being and realizing that the babe in front of you is the Son of God, sent to save the world from its sins?
Awe wouldn’t begin to describe the level of wonder and emotions I would be feeling. Just picturing this scene fills my heart with love and joy. I am so grateful to my Savior for the countless blessings He has sent to me. I am indebted to Him for the sacrifices He made so that I can be saved from my sins. I know that He lives and He loves me personally and that He too can’t wait for me and Jason to become parents and to get a glimpse of the kind of all-encompassing love He feels towards us as we feel that love with our daughters. This is the love that He feels towards each of us and I pray that each of us will feel and recognize that love in our lives each day.
