Is it possible that a tiny baby can touch and change lives? Babies have an amazing way of bringing people together. When Lucas and Santino were born, we started to hear from relatives who had not spoken to us in years. They said they wanted to come and visit. There was more warmth in their voice. It was as if we had never grown apart. Our families were reunited again, thanks to the twins’ birth.
And this is what comes to mind when I think about that first Christmas. How the birth of God’s Son, Jesus, brought an alienated humanity back to God. We have a reason to talk to God again and not feel estranged. He is just delighted to hear from us. We can approach Him freely because of Jesus. He is the miracle baby that made us part of the family of God. As we journey together to Christmas, let’s be thankful for the miracle that changed everything.
