This morning while reading Luke chapter 1 to Emily, where Mary, a virgin, one, has an encounter with an angel; two, learns she’s pregnant; and three, that the baby in her womb isn’t any guy’s baby (since she’s a virgin) but the very Son of God, the following conversation took place:
Me: Sweetie, do you know what is so amazing about the way Jesus came to earth? Well, see that part where the Bible says that Mary is a virgin?
Em: Yeah.
Me: Well, a virgin is a person who has not had sex. Do you remember when we talked about that?
Em: Yeah.
Me: Do you remember what has to happen in order to make a baby grow in a mommy’s belly?
Em: Yeah.
Me: Do you remember what a daddy has inside him that is special that has to fertilize the mommy’s egg?
Em: Ummmmmmmm…larvae?
Me: …

    This is the true story of 5-yr old, Hannah Garman, who was
    diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor.
    She has been given 12 weeks to live and is currently in her 7th week. She
    was going to be the flower girl in a wedding in May, but was diagnosed
    A week after we asked her to be the flower girl. This is especially sad
    because her mother died 2 yrs ago from breast cancer.

    Right now she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bed
    And cannot really do anything or play with the gifts she is getting from
    people, but she LOVES getting cards – she has gotten so many from people she does
    not know and just loves to have grandma read about the people who send
    Them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just
    filled with cards.

    When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see how
    Many Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to
    their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groups
    where children are making her cards. People are including pictures so she
    can see who it is that is sending her the card.

    If you would like to help with her wish, you can send a card to her at:

    Hannah Garman
    704 Orchard Rd
    Lititz, PA 17543

    THANKS! Feel free to pass this along to your own prayer group, church,
    school, etc. Let’s see if we can have the cards coming in big postal bags
    for her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

    P.S. You can also send my email to anyone you forward this to, if they
    Have questions.

  3. This makes me think of one of my nephew’s first day of Kindergarten. His teacher’s name is Mrs. Peterson (who he calls “Peterson”, for no discernible reason). So on the way to school, they prayed, and talked about how nice the teacher was (his older brother had her too), and did everything to reassure him.

    After talking for quite a while, my sister said to him, “and remember who is always with you …” Nephew: “Peterson?”

    LOVE these pics of EM 🙂
