HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!
Merry Christmas from the Vincelli's!
This Christmas holds new and precious emotions for me. It will be my first Christmas as a mommy. During the four previous Christmases (2006 through 2009 of trying to get pregnant), Nick and I wondered if we’d ever hold our own baby in our arms. So, this year as I hold my two precious babies, I give thanks for these two miracles we prayed years and year for. I think about the birthday of our Lord and Savior. I am truly in awe of the power of the perfect baby, Jesus, and how He was sent to die for our sins. A beautiful, tiny baby born to save the world. So much hope lies in the faces of all babies…a hope for the future, faith for God’s plan, and love for always.
When I look at Elijah and Will, I try to imagine their future. Who will they be and what will they accomplish? I know God holds their future and I feel so blessed to be in their lives to be with them as they learn and grow. What an honor to be called their mommy! And when they look back up at me, (usually while they're spitting up...ha!) with those tiny beautiful blue eyes, I wonder if they’ll ever truly know how loved they are. Not only by me, but by so many who love them so! I wonder if they’ll ever truly understand what it was like to spend 1430 days praying for their safe arrival. But overall, I pray they’ll always know they are my miracle babies and I’ll love them no matter what, forever and always…
So, as we celebrate Christmas, the birth of our Lord and Savior, we remember the power and gift of a tiny baby. The tiny perfect baby who died for our sins and saved the world. Happy Birthday, Jesus!
