With faith like a child


As we gear up for the Christmas Holidays, may we all have the faith of children!

JMonster has been giving us his updated list for Santa. Daily. It includes all things Ben 10, anything that shoots (you'll put your eye out Ralphie!), and cars. Lot of cars.

The way he begins the conversation of late is, "When Santa brings me..."

In his mind, there is no question that Santa will bring him any and all things he asks for.

If only I could approach my faith in Jesus the same way.

(And just how do we explain in the future that Santa ISN'T real, but Jesus is? We've started the conversation about who Kris Kringle was. Any suggestions?)

Someone told me today that there are some kid-oriented books about St. Nicholas and that they broke the Santa spell by sharing about St. Nicholas. Think we will do that with Michael next year.
