Meeting babies can make us say strange things.

We comment on their looks - we hypothesize about their future based on their fingers and toes - and a lot of us make silly faces at them.

Perhaps the only time a person had lofty hopes for a baby and they were totally right is when Simeon and Anna meet baby Jesus.

How did they know? Perhaps God lets the TRULY devout in on the secret…

What hope there is in any baby - but the promise that is in this baby is beyond all imagination!

Why do we love to imagine a future whenever we meet a baby?
