Deacon's mind is working... which means God is definitely working. Here are just a few of the questions that Deacon asked me tonight as I laid with him in bed.

"Why do we have to wait for 'a long, long time ago' before we go to Heaven?"
"When Jesus died on the cross, did they glue him on?"
"How will we get our house to Heaven? Are we going to fly it there?"

"Is God an angel? Why does He have wings?"

"Was Jesus an angel when he came here?"
"Will Maddox still be a baby when we get to Heaven?"

Oh my goodness! We had an awesome discussion about God having a purpose for us here, about Jesus dying on Calvary, about our own room in God's mansion, about God and angels, about Jesus being born a boy just like him, and about what Maddox might be like in Heaven. AMAZING!
