It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas.

The other day I was on the phone praying with a friend when my youngest, Sadie, walked in the room. When I was finished, she said,

"Mommy, you can call God on the telephone?"

"Oh, no, sweetie, we can talk to God anytime. I don't call Him on the telephone, I just pray wherever I am. Jesus opened the door so we can go before our Heavenly Father, robed in the righteousness of Christ, whenever we want just by praying. "

Never one to pass up the opportunity for a teachable moment, I also added, "I do have Santa's number on speed dial, though...I'm just sayin'."

Was that wrong?

Ha! I think it was totally fine.

In highschool I was actually babysitting a girl who was not behaving and I "called" Mrs. Claus (my cousin) and had her talk to the girl. She straightened right up!

Totally worth it.

You do what you gotta do!

There is actually a 1-800 number you can call to get a pre-recorded Santa message. I totally used it when I taught first grade.
