A 5 year old's questions

Today while on the way to BSF my 5 year old, Monkeyman, sneezed several times.  I followed up - being the oh - so - polite mother (have to do it myself - if I'm gonna teach my boys) with "God bless you".  Monkey quickly said thank you and then asked the question.



"Does God sneeze?"

"Well, I don't know. "  (pause for contemplation) "No.  I don't think so."  (more pause for contemplation)

"Why not?"

(continued contemplation)  "Well, I don't know. Because He's God and He probably doesn't have tickles in His nose."

"I think He does. That's how this cold wind blows.  It's a God sneeze."

"Oh. Okay."

Then at BSF - our lecturer spoke of secret things that only the Lord knows.  This conversation came to mind... and I smiled.

Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong to the LORD, our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.

I'm always amazed by a child's innocent eyes... the things he sees when I'm so blinded to it... the childlike faith. Oh, the things we can learn from ones so small~

Working on the mud-scraping with you... praying for direction... counting down until reunion!

much love,

p.s. have a wonderful weekend get-away :)
