A Human Experience

Courtesy of Mashable's viral video of the day.

I had two reactions to this. One was the simple humanity of her reaction to hearing her own voice for the first time in her life, the joy it brought her, and the joy it brought me to see her experience that moment. The second was to think that this kind of joyous moment is what people experienced during the life and times of Jesus. This kind of scene was repeated over and over around Jesus as he healed the sick, gave sight to the blind and even raised the dead. So if you  sometimes wonder what it was like in his orbit, this video is a great little example of what kind of joy was jumping off around the Savior all the time.
