A Little Child Won't Be Leading Us!

Last night as Barrett and I sat and read some books together, I asked him a question.
"Barrett, if Christmas is Jesus' birthday, how come we get the presents?"

"Hmmm. I don't know, Mommy."
He thought about it for a moment and then said,
"Maybe because He likes to watch us open presents!"

I was pleased with that answer. At least it showed that Barrett thinks God takes pleasure in our joy. My momma pride was short lived, however. As I was studying Barrett's sweet little face and thinking about his answer, he was busy thinking of another question.

"Mommy, do you think God worships us on our birthdays?"


  1. I love it!!! Okay, so maybe he's still figuring out what worship is and all that, but he's thinking, thinking about the things of God, which is where it all starts!

  2. That story is too cute!

    Wanted to let you know I updated my blog to give more specifics on the 12 Days of Christmas. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. HAHA! That Barrett is a handful, but his answer show that his really thinking about spiritual things!

  4. I love the things that kids say! He's such a little man. He'll be having theological debates with Ben before you know it!

  5. barrett has the best stories ever, thanks for sharing!!
