A Child-like Wonder Before God
With 2 sons that are now 4 and 1 years old, Christmas has become even more fun the past few years. Arinne and I were both battling a touch of the flu this year, but Christmas morning was still the most fun I can remember having in a long time, and it was a family memory that Arinne and I already treasure. On opening each gift, we got to watch the boys give an expression of pure joy, followed by 10 minutes or so of playing, before we had to remind them that there were still more gifts to open! It took so long that we even had to pause and eat breakfast (cinnamon rolls from Sherry Hulen – thanks Sherry!) before finishing the gift opening. But we were in no hurry; the boys were great, and seeing them have such fun was simply an absolute joy.
