I feel like I’m committing blasphemy making this conversation public—especially during Holy Week. I’m ashamed this was ever an issue for my child, albeit a hopefully fleeting and harmless one.
Margaret: “Mama, when Jesus rises from the dead, is He a zombie?”
Me: “A---A zombie??!! ---No! ---NO!!”
Margaret: “Does He stink?”
Ella: “No, Margaret, He would have to be dead for four days to stink like Lazarus.”
I am posting this for two reasons 1) lest I forget it and 2) lest any of my other children encounter these questions with me being as unprepared as I was today.
Lord have mercy.
