And the silver spoon.

Acting like Jesus...

Mallory portrayed Baby Jesus in our church's Christmas pageant. Usually, there is just a token Nativity scene incorporated in the last 5 to 10 minutes of the show and a curtain call. This year, Mallory was on stage 30 to 40 minutes per show for five shows. She did great the first four, but during "What child is this," she got this look of utter terror and I knew it was coming. "Mary and Joseph" who are also her Godparents did all they could, but I ended up walking her out early, the poor thing.

We're all kind of like that sometimes... I mean, we put on our "Jesus" costume and try to do the impossible when we are all really just scared, sad, sinful little babies. I think Mallory probably had it right, we should let Jesus be Jesus. Thanks be to God for His sacrificial death and resurrection.

    You know what i like about the real Jesus? As a baby, He probably would have lost it if He were in a Christmas pageant too. :)

    Yeah, Pastor T. said he doesn't buy this "No Crying He Makes" bit.
