From the artist:

I am brought to tears just working on this image.

The divine baby, God incarnate, cuddled into his blanket and hat. The stripes of his blanket represent the shepherds and angels with stars and doves, respectively. Behind his head, an iconographic halo harkens back to historical images of Jesus. This beautiful Black baby Jesus, inspired by a photo of my newest family member, sleeps on the night of his birth.

As a new year dawns, I imagine, what if this year were the first year? What if this baby was the baby Jesus? What are my hopes for the life of God incarnate, in his Black body, in this moment? 

That he will not be judged by 
the content of his character or the color of his skin
but invested in because he was born, 
and that makes him worthy of investment.
That he will live freely a life of happiness and joy. 
That he will enjoy his moments, 
find purpose, 
live into deep love, 
share great kindness,
wander in the expanse of his great mind. 
That those who meet him 
will see the love he holds, 
will see the joy he lives, 
will see the kindness he is shown. 
That those who meet him 
will treat him as the genius that he is, 
will treat him with the dignity he owns, 
will treat him with the respect he embodies,
will treat him with the grace and humility in which he thrives. 
That those who meet him 
will assume that he is a precious being,
will revel in the power he exudes,
will soak in the joy he emanates,
will reflect the love he radiates. 

Can we live out my dream?
