"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy" 1 Peter 1:8
Little Noah has been nothing but joy over the past two weeks. He almost always has a smile on his face, or one that's easy to get out of him. I have laughed so much at him: I didn't think that a little baby could be so much fun!
What an awesome precursor to the joy of Christmas! While I can only imagine the joy of the angels or the shepherds or Mary and Joseph, I am thankful for the joy that God has graciously given to my heart this Christmas season. Even though I have not seen the baby Christ with my own eyes, I have the joy of knowing that he chose to come into the world to save sinners like me.
