Are you there, God?  

I had a conversation in late June that went like this:
Chase: Mom, come quick! It's an emergency.
Mom (Saunters outside, used to Chase's many non-emergency shrieks): Yes???
Chase (Pointing up): Look mom! It's God!
Mom (Looks up)
Mom (In total sincerity): Wow!
Mom (Goes back in the house for her camera, pondering): Amazing the purity of a child's perspective. Immediately, he unabashedly and without doubt calls out the artist's name that created this masterpiece.

What next?

    that is SO great! Kids are such an awesome reminder of how close to God we once were and what we'll spend the rest of our lives trying to get back to :) they are so innocent...

    my mom always told me that she liked to think that since God made babies, then we are closest to him when we're first born... and it's only the world that taints our relationship with him and forms that gap... when i think of it like that it makes me want to be little again, and i try to remember what it was like to know God so well :)

    thanks for the comment, i really appreciate encouragement when i write things like that. Sometimes its hard to post stuff like that, but i know that God will use it... and that's more important!

    That is absolutely beautiful and what a wonderful, wonderful moment with your son. I can remember, when I was probably around his age, thinking the same thing when I saw shafts of light coming from the sky. Children definitely see the Truth of creation around them, don't they?
