* Today we were at the Verizon Wireless store because I desperately need a new phone. I gave all the kids a lollipop with strict instructions to stay seated or their lollipop would be taken away. They sat for about 5 minutes and then this very nice lady (who was waiting for something and who happened to be one of the nurses on the maternity floor when I gave birth to McKenna) went over and sat on the floor with them and started talking to them. I could only hear bits and pieces of the conversation as I was talking to the sales guy, but my ears perked up when I heard Nate's indignant voice say; "No he's not! He my brudder." This lady was apparently asking Abby if they were brothers and sisters or just friends. Abby was telling her that Christian and Nathan were cousins and Nathan was having no part of it. The conversation continued and Abby said; "No Nate. He's your cousin, not your brother." Nate recanted with; "No Abby. He my brudder. Right Chrish?" Christian's just as clueless about all of this and voiced his agreement that they were indeed brothers.
*I was praying for Nate when I put him down for his nap today and after I had said "Amen" Nate asked me; "Jesus live at church right?" I explained that Jesus actually lived in Heaven up in the clouds. Then Nate asks; "Where does God live?" I explained that they lived in the same place. Nate then proceeded to ask several tough questions: Can God see me? Can God hear me? How can God hear me? Can we call him on the phone?
"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds down in the humility that comes from wisdom." James 3:13
So precious that this little boy is seeking wisdom and understanding at such a young age!

Nate seems to have such a tender heart. God is going to use him for MIGHTY things one day - keep cultivating that sweet heart Judy. Those quiet time conversations are priceless!!!

I love it when they wonder... why did God make me, How big is God, Can I see Him? Way to go Nate! Elizabeth and I laid in bed last night and had a very similar conversation about Jesus, specifically about him coming to live in our hearts. It was awesome. We ended our conversation understanding that Jesus is the only thing that matters, if we love Him everything else we need or want happens because we love Him. Children discovering God, and his love for them is the best! Good Job!
