On God and His Reasons


We sat in the chair together, last night, twin boy and I.
Our bodies overlapping slightly, with a blanket,
warm, comfortable,
and we talked of God.

I asked him questions and he answered them fluidly, with confidence.

I asked him how he knew there was a God and he said one reason was
that God had made every person to be so unique,
so different from every other person on earth.

I asked him why he thought God did that.

He said - the main reason that God made us all so different,
is because if we were all the same, we would be lonely.

He said - if we were all the same, then the world would be filled
with all of these people,
but there would still only be one person, really.
And that would be lonely.


I think we should ask children more questions.

I agree.
Children are smarter than adults will ever be.

I think so too. I love to just talk to my kids about random things. The stuff they come up with is so cool!

I love asking children questions. They are so much more enlightened than most adults.
