We called her our “Christmas baby” as she was born in December of the year 1998, the first of our children to arrive during “this most wonderful time of the year”….the magical, bright, joyful, holy and divine Christmas season!
We called her our “sweet baby” because of her gentle disposition and the heavenly scent that emanated from her tiny little body. You could hold this precious bundle for hours watching her lips curl up in an uncontrollable smile, be enveloped by the sweet aroma and lulled to sleep by her deep rhythmic breathing. It brought us such perfect peace in our hearts despite the difficult outward circumstances surrounding our family at the time.
….And we called her Grace.
Yes, we purposely named this child Grace because that particular year we had experienced an abundant outpouring of God’s grace in our lives. Grace is often defined as….
- God’s unmerited favor
