While playing doctor:
Friend- “What’s wrong?”
Noah- “Maybe I have a broken heart?”
Deacon was trying to stand on a chair and be his crazy dare devil self:
Nanny- “If you ever see Deacon doing that, please come tell me.”
Noah- “Maybe I can tell Jesus in my heart?”
Looking through our Children’s Story Book Bible (which is incredible PS):
Noah- "Mom, where is God’s face?"
Me- "We don’t know what His face looks like."
Noah- "Yes, he’s on the front (of the book). Oh wait- that’s Jesus. He looks like Daddy."
Later I showed him the story of Noah:
Me- "Noah is in the Bible too."
Noah (looking at the picture)- "But I don’t have enough hair or a beard."
How do you explain there are two Noahs?!?!
"Mom, when will I get to see Jesus?"
"Mom, when will Jesus come out of my heart?"
"Mom, will we all go to heaven?"
He has such a desire to learn and understand more about God and Jesus. We have lots of whys, hows, whens, and whats being asked around our house these days. I find myself struggling to answer some of the questions just because God is so deep and His ways are beyond our understanding.
I feel quite blessed to have the opportunity to love on this kid through his questions and shepherd his faith- even when I don't know the answers. The responsibility is great and I pray the Holy Spirit intercedes often.
