Recently my oldest son and I were traveling in the car together to go to Mass. He kept on getting upset because the sun was so bright and it was right in his face (even with the visor down). "Why does the sun keep on getting me Mommy? It won't leave me alone!" he said. I told him, "Honey, the sun is like Jesus. He's always there and he'll always be around you and with you."
Later that night I was telling my husband about our conversation that morning. Daddy explained a little bit further about the analogy of the sun being like Jesus. "The sun," he said, "is still there even when it goes down at night, but it always comes back, doesn't it?" Our son nodded and Daddy replied that Jesus is the same way.
Gotta love those teachable moments!
