A gift from my mother

This is a small statue of the son of God. It’s the reason to go to mass, have a moment of peace, and open your mind to new ideas. This statue represents a kid, the son of God, a kid with the mission of the change the world. He is dressed with bright and colorful clothes. We decorate his basket and ask for his blessing as a precious tradition of my family in Ecuador. After mass, we make a party and celebrate with the statue. It’s a party where we share moments of laughter, and where we dance and sing. This statue was a gift from my mother to take care of me because ‘’God always is with you’’. What can I say, maybe it is true that he is present, watching how my children grow.My family believe in an always present GOD.
