Around Christmas, our oldest was in a musical at church. Q.-Age-Three went to watch, and was completely enthralled with the living nativity near the end. If you recall, she thought it was real. I know that I explained to her that these were just children acting out the story, and that the angels and Mary and Joseph were not real angels, nor the real Mary and Joseph. And I really thought she had understood.
Now, I’m not so sure.
This morning, we had our piano* tuned. Q.-Age-Four, who always has a lot to say, and is known to chatter when she finds an audience, decided to discuss the matter with the Piano Man.
“Excuse me,” she said, “did you know I saw Jesus one time at my church?”
*Our piano is a one hundred year old upright grand. He told us this is sort of like teaching our children to drive on a car with 600,000 miles on it.
