My Christmas Gift this year…

I received a wonderful Christmas gift last night! As I was attending my daughter’s 7th grade orchestra concert listening to them play with all the feeling of heart & skill that 7th graders can do, the song “What Child Is This” floated into the air. The melody very familiar – but what made it remarkable was a family sitting next to me; a brand new grandma & grandpa holding, caressing, kissing their obviously VERY newborn grandson. And just as the music to the song began, a very tender newborn cry came from the baby. I was touched and gently reminded of the sweet reason for this Christmas season! He is the reason! He is the gift! I know this night will always be remembered in my heart! May we each find our own reminders that He is the gift!
