Out of the Mouth of Babes.

Blog Posted:1/8/2007 6:30:00 PM

My grandson Wlliam jr. who I call a miracle boy, is eight years old.

One day, out of the blue ,he said to his mother,

"Mom, I know that this life is  only temporary and  that one day we'll have to go home to God. I don't mind going but I don't want to go alone. I would prefer if we all went together.

Lets see who can match that . Give it a try!!

    Hi Meg, Thanks for the warm welcome. I so look forward to becoming a part of the soup family. I have enjoyed your blog and look forward to reading more of your works. I even laughed about the snake incident although I know it must have really shaken you. God Bless -Alexandra

    When my grandmother died, I asked mom what she saw, when she died. I want to see the same things as well. I am glad not every body has been saved, because my job is not done. Thanks!

    His thoughts are heading in the right direction in terms of family unity. He has the touch of abiding love in his heart and that just awesome! ~ Joseph

    Quite a profound statement for an 8 year old. The fact that he's named William Jr. is a good thing too. :)
