Every Friday, during breakfast and lunch, I read the Sparks Bible to my 3 & 5 year old grandchildren. They love the stories. There are tons of questions about the stories:
“Who came first – Jesus or God? Who is God’s mom?” “I love God. Are there any girl Gods?”
“If the Big Bang started our universe (it’s planet week at daycare), what did God do?”
“Is God everywhere? At school? How come the teacher doesn’t know about the Spark Bible?”
Each time we read, there is a new question. They want to hear the stories and want new ones each week. I have few answers to the questions. That’s OK. They don’t mind that I don’t have all the answers.
We walk and look at the new buds. “Can you see God’s beauty in the new buds or small flowers?” “Nana, I think that’s nature.” “Isn’t God in nature?” “Yeah – that’s it.”
Dear God, let me be a child in the wonder of you in nature. Let me ask the questions and be ok with no answer. Let me wonder and love and hold You in my heart each day.
