The anticipation of the birth of a baby is something that almost can't be described. As a mother, you can spend all the time you want reading books and making rules about what we will and won't do with our children, or be like as parents (a funny link about this here). But the excitement from people who have never even met the parents-to-be, simply because of the status of the one being born - is almost one that also cannot be described. Huge crowds of strangers gather to see just a glimpse of the 8 pound something, completely dependant and helpless little boy (or a glimpse of the person who is about to tell the world the news of).
The radio announcer mentioned that already (at less than a day old) there is a huge burden on these tiny shoulders, as this little baby boy is in line to one day become King and rule over a nation.
I've been reminded today that every single person is unique and not like any other... Even identical twins aren't the same. We all have different strengths, weaknesses, passions, hobbies, limitations, hair colour, eye colour, and no two fingerprints are the same! Does it make you wonder how incredible our God and Creator is? Yes, science tells us that cells join and multiply and then a baby is produced, but each and every person is specifically created with different characteristics and personalities into His plan... His eternal and perfect plan.
