In light (no pun intended) Of the new pics I captured (and posted on my home page) I am now focusing intently inward.....
Oddly enough, my oldest son, Jake (16) asked me a question yesterday. "how do you know God really exists if you cant see him?" To that, I gave him my stock answer. "Well Jake, you cant see ultrviolet light either but that doesnt mean it isnt there, right?" I went on to explain that spirituallity is something that dwells within us and more important than any car, jewlery,house that money can buy. I reminded him that none of that stuff can be taken with us when we die.
It was a good talk.
I love having these talks with my kids! It is so humbling to know that God saw fit for me.....little 'ol me....to be their first and primary teacher! Wow! What an honor this is!!
My daughter name is sara. She is 14. When she was about 3 yrs old I intended on discussing with her the different colors of people and how God loves us all and as an opener, I asked her in terms that her 3 yr old mind would understand..."Sara, How are people and flowers alike?" She thought hard for a second. I expected her to say the obvious....that we are all different colors but instead she both surprised and delighted me with her unequivical child-like brilliance that only they can posess and said, "We all grow, Mommy!"
Ahhh, out of the mouths of babes!!
Memeories like these make me love being a mom all over again!
