Oh my baby girl...
My sweet baby girl said the most amazing thing on Easter.
I was getting pretty tired of the whole "commercial" aspect of Easter. I decided we were going to celebrate Easter in a manner that best represented the "holiness" of the season.
We went to Maundy Thursday service, Good Friday service. I had dialogue with the kids about what Easter means. We watched Passion of the Christ.
And in keeping with the "holy" theme, I told my kids that Jesus was bringing them a little goody on Easter, and NOT the Easter Bunny.
Fast forward to Easter morning.
I woke up my sweet Jada and the first question out of her mouth was, "Did Jesus come?"
I said, "Of course honey. And he brought you something!"
I put her down so she could see what she had been left. She spotted the Easter basket but started to walk past it.
I said, "Jada, there is your basket."
And that sweet princess said to me, "Hold on mom. I need to go see Jesus first. Then I will get it."
I didn't even know what to say. My girl was wanting to speak to Jesus before she received her gift!! I was blown away. Amazing. Just amazing...
