"Mommy, I can't wait to see Jesus"

I have now had the privilege of having such a sweet talk with both of my children at the age of 4. I can remember being on our couch in GA when Rach was 4 and her asking so many questions about Jesus and then just holding her as she cried because she wanted to see him so badly. Brady now is so curious and has been asking questions. And as we passed up bedtime tonight because we were still talking, my heart smiled. He too wanted to know all of the ins and outs. He too sat and cried in my arms because he wants to see Jesus, but also because he would miss me if he dies. It is amazing to be able to tell your children, with no hesitation, that once they are in heaven, they will not want anything else. Ofcourse Brady thinks it will be nice if there's some toys there but not cars because he doesn't want to get ran over:) Trying to explain it all in a way that they understand and in a way that's not scary, but yet in a way that is truthful is a hard job. I am thankful that my children want to see Jesus....I do too. And I am thankful for my amazing God who loves me so much. And I am thankful for Jesus!

When Brady says the word Pumatoes it could mean a tomato, it could mean a potato, or it could mean a tornado. He just asked me "Mom are Pumatoes real?" So I said you mean the red ones or the brown ones? He said "No, I mean the ones that twirl in the air." I said, "yes they are real." He said " If you were ever pumping gas and I was in the car and we had a pumato and you got blowed away, I would be really lonely." I guess he would!
