Here is a text exchange I had with one of my former students, now a friend:
Me: What did Santa get for you?
She: Sadly, nothing. But I did eat a lot of cake. What did he get for you?
Me: Nothing. And a lot.
She: And a lot?
Me: I don't want to believe that he brought nothing for me. I think he did. Only I would realise what his gifts were as time passes.
She: Of course. That's how God works. Sometimes, it feels like a Tarantino movie to me. It's hard to keep up, but eventually everything will make sense.
Well, that was quite a compliment for the Almighty, don't you think?
Merry Christmas! :)
