Sheri, I love that comparison--seeing the room in China as the quiet, empty stable. Ours wasn't quiet or empty, but in that moment I only remember the three of us together. Aren't we blessed to have met our children in this season?
I love this time of year...for so many of the same reasons you expressed. We, too, met our first son in China on Dec. 12, 2005. His arrival into our hearts happened months earlier, but his physical presence in our family in a cold, nearly empty room in China, is a reminder of where Jesus was born. Not a busy, full location, but a quiet, empty stable.
We've always said that Micah is our best stocking stuffer ever...2nd only to the arrival of baby Jesus!
