What I see and what I think about it.

The beginnings of understanding

On Good Friday I was talking to Martha about what it was all about. We read the story about Jesus dying in her children's bible and talked all about it. Martha was really interested to know everything. And we talked a lot (but not graphically) about a really simple picture of Jesus on the cross. In was in amongst this that she suddenly said: "Mummy, Jesus got pants on so he doesn't stick to the cross!" - Well what can you say to that!?
A bit later on she talked about the soldiers taking Jesus away. She said: "I want to be a parrot, so I can make the soldiers go away." - What can you say to that?! I just hugged her tight. You could feel Jesus smile.
