All alone

In what I think is a fairly typical kid fashion – Elijah finds lots of reasons to keep from going to bed and then a few more to keep from falling asleep, but last night was a new one.

E: “I don’t want to go stay in bed!” Tara: “Why not?” E: “I’m all alone in here!”  T: “What?” E: “I’m all alone in here!” T: “You’re not alone in here God is always with you, God and your stuffed animals.” E: “but God’s not here, I can’t see him!”

I’m not sure exactly how the conversation ended, but it was filled with reassurance that God was still real and with you even though you can’t see him.  I was thinking… it might not be the last time you try to figure that one out my son…

    True enough. Yesterday one of my Sunday School kids said something similar when we were talking about listening to what God says. “But God doesn’t talk! I can’t hear him!”
