Laughter and Life after Death

On Christmas Eve, my mother told us she would like to set aside time for a Scriptural or spiritual moment to remember the true meaning of Christmas and focus on our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
To this my sister replied: "I worship Jesus every day and in everything I do. Can't I have a day to just play with my family?!"

Then, tonight, I was backing up the car and Lemur asked me to change the music to a song he liked.

I sternly answered, "I can't right now. I have to focus on driving or we could crash and die." He has heard this answer quite a few times as we have been out driving in the snow storms for the past week.

He was silent for a moment. Then he said, "Mom? It's okay. If I die, you bring me back with fire and wood."

"Fire and wood? What do you mean?"

"On Star Wars. Like Darth Vader."

"Honey, I don't think it works like that in real life."

"Oh yep it does. But I'll be blue, like with Yoda."
