The headline of today’s post came from the brilliant musings of my six, soon to be seven year old nephew. I told him that I wanted him to stay little and not have his next birthday. He didn’t think that was a good idea—I think he’s looking forward to the next Wii game he’ll get from his aunt Dawn. Well unemployed aunt Dawn is going to be wrapping up something that she has laying around her house.

I love kids. They crack me up. They see life in such simple terms. It’s so refreshing to hear kids simplify things that we tend to complicate. It’s also fun to watch them observe and comment. Today is Easter. To those of us who have put our faith in Jesus, the truth and the way is black and white. It’s simple, it’s lovely, it’s a gift beyond anything else we need. It’s everything. I hope all God’s children (you’re included in that group) will come to know Him and love Him.

The Easter egg hunt today was fun. The time spent with my brother and his wife and their kids was wonderful. Like I said, I love kids—other people’s kids. I like them because they don’t live in my house. So Happy Easter and go ahead and sneak a bite of chocolate bunny or some peeps out of your kid’s basket.
