Bunny’s Advent Reflection
I wanted to share with you the thoughts that Bunny had this morning while working on the Prophecy Card for this week! The Prophecy of the Names is the second one presented in the Catechises of the Good Shepherd program. It is Isaiah 9:5
“For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulders dominion rests. They call him Wonder-Counsel, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.”
I read it to her and then she started tracing the prayer cards words while I asked her what she thought about all of the names. We reflected a bit on nick names and how she has many names that I call her. I then asked her what her favorite one was that Isaiah had mentioned. She said Father Forever right away! She then decorated the card with a picture of baby Jesus. So I asked her why she thought that Jesus had such big names when he was just a baby. She told me this:
“Jesus is God. He has no beginning and no end. So he can be big when he is small, and small when he is big.”
Wow! She blew me away!She has such deep thoughts for such a small person., and I am constantly amazed! I feel blessed to be able to witness God working quietly in her soul! Not everyone is blessed with the opportunity to see a childlike faith, and some dont see the blessing it is.
