Sometimes we just need to be held and reassured that we will be okay, even if we don't believe that and no explanation can convince us.

So beautiful! Thank you!

this has more threads of truth ….. and longing than I could ever explain....

How intelligent your young Chelsea was to have asked such brilliant questions. And how wise your mother is! When my first grandson was a bout four years old, he asked if I knew what God looks like. I felt I needed to be very careful with my answer because his other grandmother was a very committed Evangelical Christian with extremely strict views of the Bible, and I have a much more liberal idea of a deity. Our grandson loves both grandmothers very much, so I didn't want to say anything that might make him take one side or another. After some thought, I told him that I thought God looks like him, and God looks like his parents, and like their parents. I told him that I think God looks like the Ocean, and the trees and all the animals and all the living things in the world. After listening politely to me go on and on for several minutes, I concluded, "And that's what I think God looks like". Then he said to me in that wide-eyed innocent way, "No, I KNOW what God looks like because my other grandmother has a picture of him in her house." I laughed and hugged him and cherish that memory of the time we had together when he was little.

I laughed out loud..... children …. so funny!
