“Jesus is under my blanket.”

My daughter, who is 3 years old, starting crying during her nap. I went in her bedroom to check on her and to see what was wrong.

“I need Jesus,” she told me. I was intrigued by this newfound theological insight from a 3 year old. We have been telling her over the last few weeks that she has sin in her heart and she needs Jesus, but I wasn’t expecting the moment to come this soon.

“Where is he?” I asked her. “Jesus is under my blanket.” Perhaps she experienced a holy ghost baptism or something and saw a vision. I probed further.

“What does he look like?”

“I dunno. He’s under my blanket.” This time I pulled her blankets and, sure enough, out dropped a tiny Veggie Tale character from the Christmas nativity set. This was the Veggie version of baby Jesus that was so tiny she lost it in the wrinkle of her sheets.

I’ll keep praying for the real thing to happen soon enough.

  1. You need to make up a t-shirt for her on Cafe Press that says “I found Jesus, he was hiding under my blanket.”

  2. That is cute. Thanks for sharing. I was impressed at the beginning of this story. I was also expecting some theological revelation.
