Elijah’s First Christmas

img_5443My favorite memory from this Christmas was sitting in the overflowing church for Christmas Eve Mass. Alongside my siblings and parents, our family is blessed to be outgrowing one pew. Packed together, I held my son against my chest as the children’s choir sang “Mary, Did You Know?” This song quickly became my favorite Christmas song last year as I pondered what, like Mary, I didn’t yet know about my unborn child.

The first nine months of Elijah’s life have allowed him to evangelize more than I could have ever dreamed. I know God will continue to use Elijah, and I will do my best to guide Elijah to listen.

This song will forever give me chills.

“When you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God.”
