Almost here. I think I'm ready. It's nice to have Bryce's sister Heather visit, as well as Grandpa Al. If the kids can hold themselves together it will be a Christmas miracle.
Tyce had an thought-provoking conversation starter. He asked, "Was Jesus black or white?" I said, "He probably looked a lot like the people on that movie we saw ("The Nativity Story"); Middle Eastern. Unless Mary was very fair-skinned . . . "
And then I thought, you and I are all made up of two parents' genes but Jesus had Mary's genetics and . . . God's?
What are His physical characteristics? Skin color? Hair? And does He have all the dominant and recessive traits for those like we do?
Or does Jesus look just like God, bypassing Mary' genetic contribution?
Interesting question, eh?
I only have a moment today. I'm taking Tyce to the dentist in a few, and then taking the kids a couple at a time to shop for each other.
Oh, and BYU won the bowl game last night against Oregon State. Some of us went, some of us stayed, but all now raise our colors high in the blue to cheer the Cougars of BYU.
(Rah rah, rahrahrah...Rah rah rahrahrah....Goooooooooo Cougars!)
That was for Bryce.
I love him. He is the best. And probably the team's biggest fan.
And now I'm off.
