I don’t know when it happened – mid-to-late twenties, but I began to like babies. Baby fever is a real thing. Truth: I’m not a baby person. I like people who can talk to me about why they are crying. It also happens that I have a two and a half year old nephew who is one of my favorite people on the planet! So I’m learning to love the youngest people on the planet.
Jesus came to Earth for us…. as a baby. HE LEFT HEAVEN! What other “god” in the world makes the effort? It’s usually by human efforts that we are saved in major religions around the world. With Jesus, He pursues US! Thank God!
Here are a few songs I have heard in the past few days that caused me to stop and ponder the miracle Baby that blessed our world:
Do You Hear What I Hear? Carrie Underwood
Specifically the line: The Child, the Child sleeping in the night, He will bring us goodness and light.
Mary Did You Know? Kenny Rogers and Wynonna Judd
Line that just gets me: Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God?
