I teach the little ones in our church. Today we learned how the angel came to Mary and told her she would be a Mother. We talked to the children about how exciting it must have been. We talked about the angels appearing to the shepherds. I told them the angels were very busy at that time because Jesus was being born and that he was God's Son. The story of Christmas becomes so familiar and we lose our since of wonder. All you have to do is talk to children about it and watch them. You will get that since of wonder back. I did.

I looked out the window from my home and saw the cows with their babies early this morning. They were all laying down. It reminded me of the stable where the baby Jesus was born. It was not fancy but something beautiful happened there. I tried to explain to the children that it didn't matter if you had lots of money or a big beautiful house or a brand new car. What matters is what is in your heart.

I know! Seeing things through a child's eyes can really open your eyes to what we as adults have forgotten!
