"Jesus is God?"
Okay Kristen, I am doing it. I don't really know why anyone would want to read about my day, but I know that I enjoy my life, so maybe you guys will get some good laughs along the way. This morning I got out of bed at 6:00 am to the sound of Ian crying in his crib.....I am just kidding. I know you don't want to hear about that kind of stuff. So.....how about this...today while I was fixing Asher's lunch he asked me "How many gods are there?". I quickly put down the spoon in hand and went over too him. I explained that there is only one God. Asher, "Then how can He live my heart and your heart and Baby Ian's heart?" I then went on to explain that God can be every where all at the same time because he is not just a simple human like us. Asher, "Then who is the man with the gray beard?" I knew he must be referring to Jesus so I explained as best I could to a three year old that God wanted to be just like us and live on Earth for just a little while so he made himself into a person for a little while. Asher, "So....there is only one God and Jesus is God?".
I am so amazed at his precious little mind. I have mentioned to my bible study ladies that one of my biggest desires is to finish college and get a degree, but there could not possibly be a better job in all the world than being here with my little boy!
I hope this can come as an encouragement to all of you, as it was for me. I was reminded that his mind is just waiting to be filled and I want to be sure it is filled with the best stuff possible. I am so blessed to be able to have these conversations with him and see him begin to grasp with "childlike faith" what even adults have a hard time taking in.
