Amy’s first theological question.
I was singing “Jesus loves me” to her last night, while she sat all attentive and pleased, and afterward I told her that Jesus loved her, and mama, and daddy.
She said, “And the dollhouse!”
And silly me, I said, “Yes, if Jesus were here I bet he’d love to play with your dollhouse with you.”
And she said, “Where IS Jesus?”
That question is a lot harder to answer a) when you’ve just stupidly said “if he were here” as if he’s not, and b) when it’s your own child asking.
