baby bump

So in love already…

Our daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child.

And our entire family is eagerly awaiting the warm welcome we will bestow upon this ‘little-one,’ as he or she becomes the newest added member to our (oft’ times) crazy family-unit this Spring!

There are so many things I can already imagine doing with and for our expectant grandchild! And don’t even get me started on the special feelings & emotions that take place when your own child is expecting one of their own. (Tissue Box alert!) Is it just me???  Because as the weeks go by and the big day draws closer and closer I have found you want to share so many things you’ve discovered while raising them. All of which now seem to have become bygone-days, far too quickly!

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem,  saying, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage. When King Herod heard this, he was greatly troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.  Assembling all the chief priests and the scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it has been written through the prophet:

‘And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; since from you shall come a ruler,
    who is to shepherd my people Israel.’”

Matthew 2: 1-6

Swaddling Clothes

The Bible says

that Mary wrapped

her babe in swaddling clothes –

strips of cloth

wound ’round and ’round

his shoulders to his toes.

This makes me think of Christmas gifts

kids often get from grandmas,

but we don’t call them swaddling clothes

we call ’em flannel pajamas.

 

 

Do you have fond memories of  the night of Christ’s birth?

hugs n’ blessing to all of you who do & may you sleep tight!

 

“She brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes…” Luke2:7
