So, my boys and I have a little ritual we carry out every time they accompany me to work on a Saturday.
As I try to get things prepared for the upcoming week, they push together two desks, then quietly sit as they enjoy a prepared box lunch which includes a PBJ, a cheese stick, fruit snacks and a juice box, as they watch EvanTude HD on the flatscreen.
Afterwards, we take the “alligator” down to the basement and explore.Finally, we hop in the car and drive to a beautiful, century-old, little white Church, light a candle and spend sometime with Our Lord in prayer before hopping back in the car to head home.
This week, just before I opened the Church doors to enter, my seven-year-old turned and stopped me, then said, “Daddy, I don’t think he (his little bro) should go into Church wearing that.”
It was a Burger King crown.
“Jesus might get offended,” he humbly added. “Because Jesus is really the only King.”
