Baby Jesus is special

My Alexander, who will be 4 in January, is really into Christmas this year. He has helped me with all decorations, including the manger scene (creche). As we put out each piece, I told him the story of Jesus’ birth. We have Mary, Joseph, 3 wise men, 1 angel and 1 shepherd with a sheep around his neck, baby Jesus and the barn. I was trying to come up with a concept that Alexander could understand about how important Jesus is. I was telling him that the Angel told the shepherds that Jesus was born. I told him that the wise men came from far away to bring baby Jesus presents. I told him that everyone wanted to see him because he was so special.
Christmas 2012Now, whenever anyone visits our house, Alexander says to them, “Come and see Baby Jesus, he’s special.” This makes tears come to my eyes every time he says it, and even as I’m writing this. Even people who have seen the manger scene at my house several times are drawn to it by Alexander who wants to tell them how special baby Jesus is. I pray that Alexander keeps this joy for Jesus in his heart his whole life.
