his insight

Today Ethan amazed me. 
My 6 1/2 year old son spoke words I would've only imagined an adult being able to comprehend
 or even realize he was hearing what he was hearing. 

I have no idea what triggered this. 
And when I asked him "what made you say that?" 
he really didn't know either. 
His reply was something like, "oh, I just thought of it, because its always what happens." 

He came up to me today and said, "Mommy, how come people say they don't believe in God; 
They say He's not really real and they don't love Him. 
But then if something bad happens, or something scary is about to happen, they blame God for it?!"

Um, yes. Good question, son. I've often wondered this.

Wow, Ethan. That's a question I regularly ask myself. I love kids and how they sometime see things so clearly--often things we adults can't get our heads around.
