How did God....


We spent the afternoon at my sister-in-law, Ellen's house letting the children play and enjoy this unseasonably warm weather. On the way home tonight Emma Claire asked some deep questions. It went something like this:


EC: Why can't we see God?


Me: Well, b/c God lives in heaven on His throne with Jesus


EC: How did he get there?


Me: Well, how did God come here on earth? (I often try to answer her questions with a question to get her thinking)


EC: as a baby, baby Jesus!


Me: Yes, and then he lived a perfect life with no sin...


EC: and then he died on the cross and rose again!


Me: Yes, and then he stayed around for awhile and then he went up to heaven


EC: did he jump on a pogo stick and jump really high all the way to heaven?


Me: Well, I don't think they had pogo sticks way back then, but yes, something like that!


{I did not even know the child knew what a pogo stick was}


Oh, the minds of children! To have faith like a child!
I hope ya'll are having a Merry CHRISTmas season!
