The disposition of a child

Yesterday, my husband and Miss J were watching a movie about the birth of the Savior. For some reason the actual words were in Hebrew, so my husband needed to explain what was happening to our three year old. The part came where Mary and Joseph tried to find shelter at the inn. Here is what happened after that:

Husband: Look, there's no room for them at the inn. They can't stay there.
Miss J (adamantly) : But daddy! Daddy! There's lots of room at our house! They can stay here!

I marvel at the pure innocence and sincerity of a child. Miss J continues to teach and remind me of what's really important. I thank her for that. :)
