From the Mouth of Babes

Feeling like I needed a little encouragement today, I dressed Collin in this shirt.
It reads, "My mommy is the best mommy, hands down." It actually made me smile every time I looked at it.

Story from a few days ago.....

The boys and I went to church on Sunday. Post-church chats are always peppered with such interesting theological questions from my little ones. Many of the inquiries center on heaven.

They'll ask:

Do they have ice cream in heaven?
Do dogs go to heaven?
Do I get to celebrate my birthday in heaven?
Do I have to share my room in heaven?

On Sunday, Connor announced that he wanted to ask God a question when he gets to heaven.

I waited, fully anticipating a question about heaven and say...TV...or video games.

He continued, "I want to ask why I was created."

Wow. Jaw dropping silence.

Fortunately, Chris overheard the conversation. Chris provided Connor a very basic, yet pointed answer. (I suppose Chris has much practice simplifying complex answers into simpler terms; think of all the fancy medicalese he translates into WebMD appropriate lingo for his many medically illiterate patients....me included!) He responded, "God created you because he loves you and he wants a relationship with you."

Later, I thought, "Why was he created?"

Where do I start?
