Merry Christmas!

Standard

Yesterday, Katie-of-a-thousand-questions asked us this one: “Why do we give each other presents on Christmas?”

Not having a good answer to hand, I employed the standard parenting stall tactic of answering a question with a question: “What do you think?”

She pondered for a moment, her brows knit together as she thought. Finally, she said, “I think it’s because Jesus is the best gift ever.”

Out of the mouths of babes…

Every day is a great day to celebrate the Best Gift Ever. May God bless you, and give you inexplicable peace, unshakable joy, and a life-changing purpose! Happy Christmas!

  1. May God bless you, and give you inexplicable peace, unshakable joy, and a life-changing purpose!

    Thank you. No nicer words have been said to me. And the same right back at ‘ya.

    Merry Christmas, Katrina.

  2. Kids say the most amazing things. Its a good thing to surround yourself with them because they continously remind us of the better things in life.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. May you & your family have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!!! The gentle reminders of what Christmas is REALLY all about are wonderful, especially when they come from our kiddos. Sort of reinforces that fact that in the midst of the chaos, we’re doing something right…teaching them to truly believe!!!

  4. Those are the moments when you know your parenting is working (or at least take some credit!!) Well said, Katie!

    I know I’m late, but Merry Christmas to all of you!

  5. Just checked to see if you’d been back online yet, but guess not. Hope you, Paul, Katie and Caleb had a wonderful Christmas and that you all have a great New Year’s celebration 🙂
