I heard the best Christmas song today. It's by one of my favorite christian singers, Francesca Battistelli. It's called, You're here.
At church this past Sunday my pastor talked about Mary and Joseph. First, how shocked they must have been to learn of Mary, a virgin, was having a baby but also that the baby would be the Son of God. During my Intentionally Engaging moms Bible study party yesterday I was reminded that Jesus came to Earth as a baby and grew into a man and died for us. He died for me. He saved us. This song is a great reminder of exactly that. So, in all the craziness that this season brings just take some time to remember the precious gift that has been given to us.
