I asked Alex if he wanted to dye some Easter eggs. In the process I found out he thought we were "dying" eggs and not "dyeing" them. Also, after the eggs had been in a color for a while he asked if we should "unbaptize" them. So many phrases are tucked into his language arsenal, but it doesn't mean that what we say is what he understands.
How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Do angels dance?
So.....if I break it down to what I hope he understands and needs to know? It is this:
"God is love. God loves you."
And that should lead to "I love you", which I have tried to explain as "I want good things for you and will work to make them happen."
Our Easter eggs are imperfect. That's okay. Look at the beautiful painting that happened on the paper towel from this process.
