I was getting ready for bed, ready to end the day.
And then I heard Tucker shout from his top bunk:
"I think it's so weird that Jesus died on the cross!"
I laughed… Did he just say it's weird? That's an interesting word choice.
I walked into his room to clarify. There he sat, with his picture Bible open to the story of Calvary, the three crosses lined up on a hill.
"See, Mommy? It's so weird."
Well, It is, kind of. I'll give him that.
Weird that it's the story of grace and life and love.
Weird that anyone has ever been crucified.
Weird that it's something I believe in.
Weird that it happened with me in mind.
Weird that it's all true.
He's right. I mean, do you know anyone else who has been crucified? Who has risen from the dead?
It doesn't happen every day.
"It is weird, Tuck. You're right. It's a lot to take in."
