Delight and Party Guests

"Jesus is coming to my birthday party."

Hmmm.

"Did he tell you that?"

"Yep, he told me last Thursday."

Oh.

"His mom, Mary, said he could."

Sure.

"Babe, He's really busy. Will you be disappointed if He doesn't actually show up for cake?"

"Moooom (long drawn out whiney voice), it's Jesus. He'll come."

Lessons on the presence of Jesus from a just turned, three-year-old: Pure delight.




Written for Five Minute Friday where authors are given a topic, asked to write, and encouraged to forget the fear of it being just right. Today's topic: delight.


Also, did you know you can vote for the Almost-Sleepover to win the Make a Difference Day Award every day? It is easy, peasy. Just go here.  Check the box that says you are over 13. Then, cast your vote for the Almost-Sleepover founders. It will say, Guilford, CT: Tween sisters' pajama parties for charity. Just click that box, and you are finished. Right now, we are being pounded by frat boys.


Happy weekend, friends.


Always,

Duh! It's Jesus, momma. He WILL be there! Don't you wish we had that kind of faith and trust to simply just know that He WILL show up? So sweet.

my son asked me a few years back at christmas time if the reason Jesus didn't "show-up, show-up" to his birthday party we throw is because we forgot balloons. {we now have one every christmas morning} :) love it!!

Renee said...

(and i gotta side w/ru on this one......jesus was at her party! can't have those delicious kind of cupcakes w/o a heavenly presence around! hee hee!.......of course he might not have been present when the nazi playlodge lady was being super bossy!)

So sweet! It's funny how often these little bitty versions of us have so much teach us and that it's not always the other way around.
