I'm here in Zambia for Christmas this year, and so I've tried to make these days leading up to Christmas extra fun and special. We cut snowflakes, we made paper chains, we practiced Jingle Bells until we're all humming it all the time. So much anticipation for today!

I've been thinking so much about Christ's birth, about how he entered this world solely to redeem us. I still can't fathom that at his birth, he was Lord and was our savior. It further blows my mind that he did that not only for those living in his time, or for us who live now and currently need that salvation, but for everyone who is still to come. I especially love thinking about how he knows each of our babies by name, by heart, and he knows how they'll sin and struggle one day. And that tiny baby Jesus coming took care of them, too.
It has been so fun to see our babes marvel at the gifts and fun this season brings. At this point in their lives, they can't really comprehend the greater gift this season means in their lives-- a savior born just for them. Our prayer is that they'll grow to learn and understand that incredible gift he's given to each of us.
Merry Christmas to you and yours! We love you guys!
