Not your usual Nativity Scene
I am pleased to announce that the diaper rash is now under control. This baby that has come into this house (when we asked God to come make his HOME here) seems to be growing and adjusting fine. He is getting plump! His little cheeks and tummy are round; his eyes are wide and sometimes focus on me; and he is so very handsome!
We attend to his every need as best we can. And I think he feels welcome here. He does not get illicit drugs through an umbilical cord; he gets all the love and attention a baby can handle.
I hope he stays here with us and never experiences drug abuse again. I hope he grows strong in the grace of God. I hope he grows “in wisdom and stature and in favor of God and [people]” (Luke 2:52), and then makes a difference in our troubled world.
