"Jesus is a Timbit"

As we approach Easter and are faced with the image of the cross and the empty tomb, I have been thinking about the importance of Jesus in our lives. 

Yesterday, after picking up a coffee and some "timbits" (they are small doughnut holes for those that don't know), Little A was excitedly eating some in the back seat.  As we drove she began to sing:

"Jesus is a Timbit. Jesus is a Timbit. Jesus is a Timbit."

I could not contain my laughter.  I tried to catch it on film but as soon as I tried she stopped singing. 

The song that she was trying to sing is from The Donut Man found here at

Apparently, I have been getting the words wrong but she gets the basics of the song and loves it. 

We sing: 

Life without Jesus is like a donut
Like a donut    
Like a donut
Life without Jesus is like a donut
There's a hole in the middle of your heart. 

Without Jesus, we only have death. We have bondage, slavery and pain.  We live our lives searching for things to fill the void. We end up with pain and sorrow because nothing fills the emptiness. There is a Jesus shaped hole in our hearts that will not be filled by anything else. 

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
Romans 5:6-11

What little A said is totally true...well with some imagination.  Jesus is like a timbit, he is the piece that fills up the hole in the center of the donut.
