After a very young boy, only 1, from our community went to be with Jesus last week, supper time talk tonight was about going to live with God.
Our conversation with the girls was candid and had me in tears as we disussed heaven and living with God. Both girls said they were scared to go live with God because they would miss us. We talked about how thats why we need to learn about God and love God so that we can all go live with God together and no one would be sad!! Wow, deep supper time convo, huh? (These are the moments!!!)
After we put the girls to bed....
Mom...oh sweetie, there will be something way better than those things there, and you won't even be sad! (Hug and tears)
Avery...like a really nice teddy or shopkins toy?! Or a my little pony?
Mom...Yes sweet girl! Way better than you can imagine.
(More tears...heaven is what we long for, but our sinful nature says not yet. As said so eloquently by this young boys relative...when it's time for God to call you home there is not a thing we can do to stop His plan! (More tears))
