"The Gift" for Girls' Outing 


The girls ( and one special little guy) had a Christmas outing yesterday. We went to Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano again this year to see their Christmas Pageant. It is always such a blessing!


Jonah's comments kept me smiling before and during the show.

Before:
Nanna, are we going to get to see what God and Jesus really look like?
Hey, will Santa be here?
What about the reindeer?
Will Jesus be big or little?
Is it time to start?

During:
Why do those angels keep coming down?
That's the real Santa, isn't it?! (He came down from the rafters in a sleigh.)
Look, Nanna. Frosty!
Why are Joseph and Mary so still?
That's a real horse.
Hey, Nanna, can we go camping in two weeks?
When is Jesus going to grow up?

He smiled, conducted the orchestra music, clapped, sang, and took in SO much.

As we left the church, he even noticed that way up in the top of the church foyer his name "JONAH" was there (biblical characters in glass). It just amazes me what little ones pick up and notice. He blesses my heart!
