New Year

The Kid
Merry Christmas (a bit late) and a Happy New Year!

The readings for tomorrow are about the boy Jesus at the temple, and young Samuel - also serving at the temple... It made me wonder what the boy Jesus aspired to become...

I thought of a question - inspired by the Walt Disney movie - "The Kid" - What would your eight year old or twelve year old self say to your grown up self?

Are you who you were intended to be?

I particularly like the part when the 8 year old version of Bruce Willis buries his head in his hands and exclaims "We don't have a dog?!!!"

so what is a 'grown up version'? I still feel like 8 yrs old.
