God With Us

The children and I were doing our Christmas Bible story. Last night’s reading was about the angel Gabriel telling Mary that she will bear a son and that she would call him Immanuel.  I asked Munchkin if she knew who the baby was……….this was our conversation –

Me – “Do you know who the baby is that Gabriel is talking about?”
Munchkin – big sigh “yes Mommy” (insert her eye roll here) “It is the baby Jesus”

Me – “Why did the angel say to name him Immanuel?  Do you know what that means?”

Munchkin – “Yes” (another eye roll)  “It is the direction thingy that you say Daddy never reads.”

Me – “Huh?”


Me – “No, not ‘manual’  Immanuel.”

Munchkin – “oh what’s the difference?”

Me – “well……………..Immanuel means ‘God with us’ and I guess he does give us directions….”

    I can so see that eye roll. 🙂 it is precious…..BTW…does anyone else in the family do that or is it just something she’s hard wired to do?

    I’m totally an eye roller. But the best eye roller is my sister.
