Gifts, Precious Gifts

Today when I woke up I thought of Mary
 I would imagine that on this day years ago
when Mary woke up from whatever sleep she could manage
Her eyes still puffy from tears
She had moments where she thought
 I wished I had said
 I wish I hadn’t said
 I should have
 I wish I hadn’t

And these were probably not big things
because she knew all along He was a gift. 
 He was special. 
He was Jesus and she was chosen to be His mother. 
What an honor and privilege!
She knew from the very beginning He was a gift and He was special!

Jesus intended the same for you. 

As a child you are a special and precious gift
to be handled with care and love. 
 As an adult/parent you are honored and
privileged to be a part of a child’s life. 
 Children are precious and special. 
 It would behoove you to handle them with care and love.
Psalm 127:3 (NLT)
Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.
His Word speaks strongly about the treatment of children.
Matthew 18:6 (NLT)
But if you cause one of these little ones
 who trusts in me to fall into sin,
it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck
 and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
How powerful that he came to earth as a baby and as a child!
Because even as a baby and a child,
He gave us the example of how we should live.
How we should love.
Gifts.
Precious Gifts.
