Does God Read His Horoscope?

A few days ago, Patrick bought a new pack of silly bands. 

If you don't know what silly bands are, I am sorry to inform you that you're living under a rock. 

Silly Bands are all the craze in kid trading these days--little rubber band bracelets that come in various shapes and colors.

Patrick chose a pack featuring zodiac symbols and this grew into a discussion. 

Patrick:  "Hey Mom!  What's my astrological sign?"

Me:  "Hmmm.  I don't know."

Patrick:  "Do you know yours?"

Me:  "Me?  I'm a Capricorn"

Patrick thinks about that for a minute, then he shouts out:  "Cool!  That means Joe was a Capricorn too, because he had the same birthday as you!"

Me (wave of sadness):  "That's true."

Patrick thinks again for a bit, then makes another, even more exciting connection:  "Hey Mom!  That means JESUS is a Capricorn!!!!!"

Me:  "Oh . . . Well . . . YES, I guess that would mean that Jesus is a Capricorn!  I never thought about that!"

Patrick thinks just a bit longer and comes to his most important conclusion of all: 

"Then that means that GOD IS A CAPRICORN!  Because if Jesus is a Capricorn, then God has to be a Capricorn!  Isn't that cool!  Wow!"

Wow indeed. 

This is one kid who knows how to make connections!
