Longing for the radiant beams from His glorious face to shine on us today, and so thankful for the dawn of redeeming grace that He brings, for we need it so. I can hardly believe it is Christmas morning, and truly cannot fathom that this time next year, we will be celebrating the birth of Jesus with our own little girl. Oh yes, that grace is much needed! Praying that we would be prepared to love and raise this baby to know her deep value and to love God and others well, what a crazy huge responsibility and honor. We can't do this alone, praise to the One who loves baby girl and her flawed parents perfectly and with that sweet redeeming grace.
