A Child's View

I know why Jesus loves the little children, so! (Especially if He could return them to their mothers!)

I had the honor of the presence of a 3 year old today (...and her nearly 6 hr old brother). She was playing with my advent calendar, moving the snowflake from pocket to pocket, touching each picture on the dated stockings.

I pointed to the space where 25 would be and asked her "do you know what is here?" She shrugged. "Baby Jesus' birthday," I said. She looked back and put her tiny finger next to mine. "Baby Jesus' birthday," she repeated.

I love to hear kids perceptions and understandings, so I asked: "What do you know about Baby Jesus?"

She looked me dead in the eye and said:

"Jesus loves me".
