I look at newborns as such amazing little miracles. Each one is the brand new beginning of a person created in the image of God. And, as I think ahead to Christmas, I am newly amazed to think that Jesus came to earth in this very same way. He too was once so tiny and perfect, with little peeling fingers, feather soft skin, a curly little body, and the ability to sleep through anything.
I thought this would be the perfect time for a contest – one that will let me meet two new little miracles this holiday season! To qualify, you simply have to be pregnant and due sometime between Nov. 20th and Jan. 31st. To enter the contest, just email me a picture of you and your cute little baby bump to email@example.com.
