My son (4) asked if he could help me do a blog post. I asked him what he thought we should write about. This is the discussion that ensued. I think it is only fair to attribute this as a guest post by Clement – his final comment nailed the answer to the question.
“Daddy, I think you should blog about Christmas”.
“OK. What particularly do you think I should write?”
“I think you should write about the best gift.”
“What is the best gift?”
“Jesus is the best gift, Daddy.”
“Why do you think that?”
“Because God sent him into the world to help us.”
“To help us do what?”
“To help us love God.”
“What was God doing before Jesus came?”
“What do you think?”
“He was getting ready for Christmas, of course!”
Yes, yes he was.
