Riding home from evening Vacation Bible School with my four year old:
– Mom? How did God make everything if you can’t see her?
[Her? That’s interesting!] – Well, umm, I don’t know how God made everything, but…
– We can’t see God, Mom, but God is there!
– Yes, God is everywhere, and made everything, and God knows that it is hard for us to understand God, since we can’t see God, so that is why God came as a person. Jesus was a real person, an ordinary person like us, but he was God, too. And so we can learn about who God is from Jesus.
– Okay, Mom. I have another hard question.
– [Deep breath] Okay?
– Is it okay to use the windshield wipers, even when we are on the highway?
