Sadie received a Fisher Price Little People Nativity Set as a birthday present from her grandparents for her birthday. She loves it, and I use the pieces to bribe her into rolling, reaching, etc. when we do her physical therapy sessions.
Sadie's favorite piece, by far, is baby Jesus. Once she gets a hold of him, she loses interest in everything else. Even when I try to get her to reach for a sheep or camel, she still holds him in her free hand. Nothing I do can persuade her to let go of Jesus. Last Christmas, we left her in Jesus' hands while she lay in an isolette in the NICU. How fitting that she holds Jesus in her hands today, and won't let him go.
My prayer for all of you this day is that you take hold of Jesus. Ignore all others. Grab on and never let go.
