The evening had come on the day her little darling was born. She cradled Him in her arms as her husband gently and quietly asked if she was hungry. She smiled and replied, "A little, but I just want to look at him and hold him for a little while more. Look at how beautiful he is, and how his eyes sparkle! Look at his tiny fingers and toes! Oh, I'm so in love with this little one already!"
Her husband smiled and brought her a warm drink and made her comfortable. They both stared in awe at the miracle of God's work. They named him Jesus as the angel told them.
"And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
Merry Christmas and God's blessings for a joyous and prosperous New Year!
