A new baby. Precious time to cuddle. Treasured sleep. So sure, little drummer boy, come and play for him. Wake him from his slumber. Force his tired and overwhelmed mother to get up from her momentary peace to console him and coax him back to sleep. Few new mothers would welcome this present, but according to the classic Christmas song, Mary did.
And what a beautiful song it is!
May we always serve the Lord with the joyous heart of the Little Drummer Boy!!
Prayer focus: new mothers and fathers
