A Christmas Thought


This is my mom's favorite image of the Christmas season, and it's become one of mine as well. Especially expecting a child...I view Mary and Jesus' relationship so much differently than I used to. This wasn't just GOD to her; this was her precious baby son, who had that sweet baby smell and cooed like any other baby. I think sometimes it's important to "humanize" the Bible so that we can relate to the emotions of the people involved. Just a reminder of how human our Savior was, yet he was Holy God at the same time. Miraculous!

mary peyton's first Christmas, i would just sit & hold her teary eyed. and when i would hear "mary did you know", i would just go ahead and cry.

being a mother completely humanizes the Bible. but it is such a sweet thing.

Merry Christmas, sweet friend! i hope that ya'll have safe travels and we'll get together soon!

much love~

Since I had children my thoughts about it have changed as well. The most heart wrenching scene in the movie Passion is when Mary is remembering Jesus falling down as a toddler when he is falling with the cross.

I love thinking about our Christ as a smelly little boy running around playing. I wonder at the age of two if he got into everything, if he was as cuddly as Layton, and so on.

Children change everythign ;)
