Ben's First Christmas

Obviously we are very excited about Christmas this year, because it will be Benjamin's first Christmas. He will be six months old on Christmas Eve. Having him changes our perspective on Christmas. We understand more clearly what Joseph and Mary went through, with nursing and changing baby Jesus, and taking care of all of his needs. The fact, also, that the Creator of the universe came to earth as a baby -- so helpless and dependant -- is a much more tangible truth to us. I mean, we knew it before, but we feel like the awesomeness of that truth is more real to us now, as we understand the utter dependance of a newborn babe. We are so thankful to God for the gift of our precious son. And, as much as we love Benjamin and are extremely grateful for him, we thank God even more for the amazing gift of His precious Son.
