Oh man, it’s quarter to midnight! Good thing I’m not in the next time zone, or I would have skipped a day.

So, on the way to church yesterday Emily, out of the blue, said, “I think it’s weird that I don’t remember living in Heaven before I came to Earth.”

Jason and I just smiled and didn’t try to correct her theology, because, well, I don’t really remember if I lived there before I came here either…

I told her that if that is how it works, God probably doesn’t let us remember because we would be so sad that we were on Earth apart from Him instead of in Heaven in His presence and so we wouldn’t live to the fullest on Earth the way God intends us to live.

I mean, I don’t really know, but science has told me I only use 10% of my brain, so, it’s quite possible that the other 90% is shut down for Earth living…I’m not saying that’s the case, I’m just saying, I don’t know.

Either way, how sweet and pure is it that a thought like that would pop into my sweet girl’s head?

  1. Writing everyday is hard work! I applaud your efforts. I’m also in the “lack of inspiring/worthy stuff” to post these days. Somehow I have a feeling that means God is up to something and is ‘at work’ in both our lives right now. Just thought I’d share that with you today. Get ready! God loves surprising people- and with things they never dreamed so many times. Here’s to His plans and dreams for our lives!

  2. I love that. My daughter (10) said to us about 6 months ago that she was sad for Adam and Eve because they never got to be children, they were just created as adults.
