We are about to get hit with a major storm here tomorrow, and we've been preparing the kids for the fact that the hurricane might be exciting and maybe a bit scary. We were discussing hurricanes in the car tonight, and Ethan asked me why hurricanes are exciting. I told him that with big weather like hurricanes we could see the power of God. He very seriously informed me, "No, Mom, you canNOT see God."
If you have ever catechized your children, perhaps using this little book, you might see where Ethan found my error:
11.Q. Can you see God?
A. No; I cannot see God, but he always sees me.
I love that the gears are turning in his little brain and starting to make connections between what he's memorized and how it fits in to his life. Even if he doesn't quite have it down pat yet.
After that, he informed Steve and I that he likes Jesus because Jesus is not scary.
