Our Beautiful Lily

Isn't she just the cutest thing in the world? Of course there's no bias here, it's just a fact!

Our little flower is beginning to blossom.
Although her name is Lily, she sometimes reminds me of a rose. she's beautiful yet she does have some "thorns"!! Don't ruffle this girls feathers, or boy, you'll get an ear full. Lily is going to be a very strong person, she is not afraid to speak her mind even if she knows she's going to get in trouble for it. But she totally blows us away sometimes with the depth of thought that she has.
The other night she got in trouble and was sent to her room. I went up there to talk with her and make sure she understood why she was being punished. We got into this long conversation about God. At first she said, "well, where is He, I don't see Him?" I told her, "God is like the air, we don't see it but we know it's there". Then she put it into her own words. "Daddy, you mean it's like this, if I looked into the sun I would be blind, right, and if I can't see that doesn't mean that things aren't still there right? like if I am blind by the sun and I can't see my pillow, it's still there, right daddy? So, that's the same thing with God, right daddy, I can't see Him but that doesn't mean He isn't there, right daddy?" Then she said "We're blind to God, right daddy?" "Uh, yeah, Lily, that's right, you got it girl!"

We're blind to God, isn't that the truth, until He opens our eyes we can't see Him!

It's amazing how kids GET God so much easier than many adults. Like Jesus said, we must be like a child.
