The Thinker

Yesterday was a cloudy day. the sun just peeked through the clouds every now and then as Brigham and I drove to school. As we drove along Brigham asked, "What do you think it will look like when Jesus comes to the earth again?" I employed my favorite redirectional technique, the one I use when I don't know the answer to a kid question: "That's a great question. What do you think?"

He pointed up at the sky in front of us where the sun was again peeking through the clouds. "I think it will look like that."




Maybe, huh? Sweet kid.

I agree. I love the pics where you can actually see the rays shining down. What a smart kid. And yes, sweet.

Okay, Brenda, so I just have to chime in on this one. You are not the only one to have darling,sweet kids. Many years ago my two preschoolers came running into the kitchen nearly tripping over each other to tell me in great excitement that they had found the "windows of heaven" and I had better hurry before they "distapear"! It was one of those cloudy, sun rays shining down days. Absolutely glorious and surely the very windows of heaven could not be more beautiful than the light and joy on the faces of my two cherubs! You already know that it was you and Derek, right?

That IS a great picture. Is that the one from your Blackberry that you had to jump through hoops in order to put on your blog? Brigham IS quite the little thinker.

Yeah, you are thinking of the right girl. She is super cute and fun. I am afraid I am going to get slightly addicted this season....
