Life questions

Interesting questions from my 6 year old.

Looks like we’ll be having a long chat soon.

How would you discuss these questions with your kiddo?

    Wow! She is a real thinker! Would love to have been a fly on the wall as you talked with her! Pass on my love!
    Please remind her of the night you all prayed for S in our hotel room and how she was well to fly home the next day! I was esp touched by her prayers that night…

    I’ll tell her 😉 That night sure does bring fond memories.
    The thing that kinda astounds me is that I didn’t ask her to write these questions. I just found them in the stash of notes she’d written while I was busy snoozing!! Of all the things she could have written, she chose this!

    Oh goodness what a sweetie and very tenderhearted!!!! I would tell her you can pray wherever whenever you want. God hears you no matter how loud you yell or how quietly you whisper. Is there more to life?Oh yes dear child each one of us walks our own path and it’s an amazing journey that will not ever turn out the way you thought but in so many ways so so so much better. WOW your daughter is amazing ….good job momma! Happy Mother’s Day

    Not sure exactly what I’d say, but I think I’d take the conversation to a nearby redwood forest for inspiration 🙂

    “is there more to life than this?” it seems like a very adult question. thanks for following my the way.. I never intend to get followers but its quite heart warming… I used to write in monologues when I started my blog.. in the same way, your 6 year old asks this questions by writing notes on the wall… 😀

    My 6 year old daughter also asks me a lot of questions about Jesus. “have you seen Jesus?”, How does He look like?”, “how can He hear all of us pray?” does He have 4 ears? How does He talk to us? it seems your 6 year old and my 6 year old can be each other’s sounding board 😀

    God Bless and keep up the great work as a mom to your 3 kids.. How I wish I would be blessed with another 2 kids too.. so my daughter does not feel so alone.. the last 2 days she spent more of her time at the neighbors house (with twin sisters 3 years her senior– they are Buddhists.. so there are times, when she will say things like ” Mom, can you buy me Bible coloring books? or Jesus coloring books?…so I can tell my new friends about Jesus?”….

    there are also times when she would share her disappointment with me and say, “sigh! they don’t believe in Jesus, they pray to Buddha. Buddha is scary”…. these are situations I have never encountered myself (as we all came from the Philppines, so we dont get a lot of interactions with Buddhists).. I dont want her to sound racist or judgemental.. but how can she handle these type of questions at a young age?

    oops such a long post to a short article.. just got a bit excited.. so happy to see a fellow Christian with a kid the same age as my daughter (equally inquisitive too)..

    regards, Lanie
