Sweetness of a 3 Year Old

Today Emily and I were listening to Christmas music and the song Mary Did You Know came on. Emily loves that song, as do I. These are the lyrics:

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Did you know
That your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
That your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Did you know
That your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know
That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little boy
You've kissed the face of God

Mary, did you know?
The blind will see
The deaf will hear
And the dead will live again
The lame will leap
The dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Did you know
That your baby boy will one day rules the nations?
Did you know
That your baby boy is heavens perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding
Is the great I Am.

After the song was done Emily said to me; "Mom, I wish I had baby Jesus." AWWWW!! What a sweet heart! Children have such a beautiful innocence that just shocks me. I love that she really does pay attention to why we celebrate Christmas. We were also watching A Charlie Brown Christmas and after Linus explained the meaning of Christmas and quoted the scriptures Emily said, "Mom, what is he talking about?" So we discussed more of the story of Christmas and specifically the angel talking to the shepherds. I LOVE Christmas with the innocence of children.
