God and Santa According to Carter

We were in the car one day and my Carter, who can be VERY random a lot, suddenly spoke up and said:

Carter: "God and Santa they are a lot alike."

Us: "How?"

Carter: "Well, they both see all we do and they both have beards - Jesus' is brown and short. Santa's is long and white. But they are different, too."

Us: "How are they different?"

Carter: "Well, Santa, he only gives us gifts one day a year, but God gives us gifts every day!"

Again, reminded by a 5 year old of what is truely important. Ever since this statement, we have challenged our family to find the gifts God has given us each day. Sometimes it is hard to see the gifts when we have so much heartache in our lives. So I challenge you to look back on each day and ask yourself, "What gifts has God given you today?"
