Mary Swaddled Jesus and held him close to her heart. He was her first born child, so dear to her. I wonder what her thoughts and dreams were for him?
Just like Mary, I bundled our babies and held them close. So many hopes and dreams for their lives lay in my heart.
God also holds us secure in his loving arms. He calls us his children and keeps us
close to his heart.
What a blessing! We belong to God, our gracious loving father. Thank you, God, for the
gift of Jesus. Open our eyes to the Christ Child’s gift of love for all mankind.
