" I created you to be part of my family" he said as he started to untangle some of the tree lights. " I planned that before you were ever born".
" I don't understand".
" I created you to be part of my family forever" the Creator said as he started to put the strand of colored lights around the tree. " I created you to love me, honor me and reign with me forever".
" I like being your friend" Nicholas replied as he attempted to put decorations around the tree.
" Nicholas, because you are spiritually born into my family" he said as he carried the box back to the spare bedroom and put it back into the closet. " Everything of mine belongs to you".
" Like what?".
" You will be with me forever and all pain, suffering and death will be no more". He put his arm around his young friend. " You will be changed to be like my son and you will get to share in my son's glory".
" Thank you" Nicholas replied as he hugged his friend.
