He brought me such joy, just watching him take pleasure. I said to him, “I really love you!.” He turned, smiled big and hugged my neck. We laugh.
It makes me think of the Christmas story. This year I read it in Luke like it was the first time, with new eyes. An outrageous story when you stop to think about it. I am filled with wonder, the faith of a child. I felt my Father God say, “I really love you!” And I felt like a child hugging my Daddy’s neck. Joy!
This year we haven’t gone all out with gifts, no big plans, but being with family and friends and taking time to be thankful to the One who gave us the reason for the season.
