It amazes me the questions my kids (and all kids) come up with sometimes. My just-turned five year old seems to come up with the most stumping theological questions.
Today in the car she asked, “When God made us, how did we know where to go? How did we know how to get home, to here?”
I told her, “Well, God made you here.”
“But then, where’s Heaven.”
“Well, God is there too. He’s everywhere.”
“Are we driving on God right now? If we do, it won’t kill Him, right?”
“Um, we’re not really driving on God right now.”
It’s so hard to explain souls and the spirit to kids…I haven’t found a good way to explain it yet. Anyone have any good ways of explaining that to little ones?
I’ve seen a couple of places lately something like, “I know spring is here because ____” or “How do you know spring has arrived where you live?” Each time I sigh as I look out the window to gray clouds and more rain.
In Oregon, you just expect rain. You expect it for most of the year. You can feel somewhat safe that it won’t rain much in July and August if you’re planning and outdoor event, but I would personally never plan anything like a wedding for any month except those two. Too much risk.
Spring just means more rain here. However, this spring has been abnormally dismal. We had the latest occurring 60 degree day on record, and our first 70 degree day was later than average as well. I believe the number of 60 degree days we’ve had this year is under five. And March had something like 29 out of 31 days of rain.
Spring has not really arrived here. I long for the days of summer, and am hoping and praying for an extra long, sunny summer this year.
