My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Let it snow.

So, tonight Sonshine is lamenting that Christmas has passed. He decides he wants to have snow for Christmas. He tells me

"I want snow Momma!"

I tell him to talk to God cause I can't make it snow in Texas when it's 85 degrees out (yes, weird weather) Only God can make it snow.

He says "Jesus NEEDS snow!!!...Open the door for Jesus so I can tell him to make it snow."

Now, a part of this kid's delays are that he's literal, not figurative. If he says the big bad wolf's driving that car then you will look to find a German Shepard in the driver's seat, in it's owner's lap. (Yup, true story) So can you IMAGINE my surprise when he tells me to open the door for Jesus?? I did a double take.

Now I know why the Angels first words are always, "Do No Be Afraid!"
whew.

You should have been here in Michigan. We had lots of snow, and ice, and wind. Sonshine would have loved it.

Perhaps he thought it was better for you to open the door for Jesus rather than have Jesus break it down. Or something like that. My mind has apparently wandered off on its own today and I can't control it!
