Tonight we watched the children’s musical at church. It was a wonderful performance by all.

It reminded me how much children make Christmas special. As empty nester’s we are so looking forward to our first Christmas ever with a grandchild. And although she is coming up on 10 months old and is too young to understand Christmas quite yet, we will enjoy her as one of God’s greatest gifts. And Christmas will be much more because of a child.

Rick Muchow writes that “childlike humility is absolutely essential to worship.”

Matthew 18:3
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Today be filled with childlike awe and wonder at the gift of the Christ Child.

And remember, a baby changes everything.
