Folks, this will be quick, and you may not know I was even here. (TWHS)
I just had to tell you about the conversation I had with a second grade girl today.
I had my sleeveless shirt on to go lift weights after school, and I was just hanging out in the gym, waiting for my lifting buddies. I had a couple of kids starving for my attention, I guess because I have bosoms that appear matronly.
2nd Grade Girl: Can I see your tattoo?”
Me: “Sure!” (lifting what’s left of my sleeve out of the way)
2GG: “Wooooow… Who’s that?”
Me: “That’s kind of me.”
2GG: “What does that say?”
Me: “It says, ‘The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair.'”
2GG: “What does that mean?”
Me: “That’s kind of hard to explain to someone so young.”
2GG “Is that Jesus?”
2GG: “Is that the sun behind His head?”
Me: “No, that’s His halo.”
2GG: “Jesus has the biggest halo, huh?”
Me: “Yes, He does.”
“2GG: “What do you have in your hand?”
Me: “It’s a hammer and nails.”
2GG: “Oh! From where they nailed Him to the cross?”
Me: “Yes ma’am.”
2GG: “Why are you holding them?”
2GG: “Is it because you put Him there?”
God 1, Travis 0.
Folks, this is how I know God has a sense of humor. Trying to tell a 2nd girl that you put Jesus on the cross is something. I’ve said time and time again that I won’t get preachy on this blog, and so I’m not going to. I will say this though, I will be saying my prayers when I go to bed this evening.
I hope you’ve had a great day, and I’ll be back tomorrow with what I’m sure will be a humiliating TMI post!
