The faith of a little child......

About a month ago, I was sitting in Grayson's bedroom with him talking and he looked at me and said, "Mom, I love Daddy." I simply replied with, "Yeah, he's a really good daddy isn't he?" Then the conversation went on, which I will share in a minute, but before I do, I want you to know that this child was NOT making this up. He was sharing this from experience like it had happened to him yesterday. There were NO pauses or anything, and I honestly believe with all my heart that he knows what he's talking about because he's not that far removed from the spiritual realm... and we heartbreaking as that's funny how as we grow older, we sometimes forget about how we came to be from our on with the story.

......the conversation continues

Grayson: "Mom, when I was up in Heaven with God, he let me choose Daddy."

Me: Trying to kind of take it all in, I said, "That's nice."

Grayson: "Well, he did! He let me choose who my Daddy was going to be, and I chose Daddy and got you as my Mommy too."

Me: Again, still trying to take it all in, I said, "Oh really?"

Grayson: "Yes, and then he let me choose Griffin, but He told me I had to go first because that's what He had planned. Then I chose Sissy. Yep, Gretchen looks just like you Mommy. She even has curly hair (side note: If we had a little girl, her name would be Gretchen. This was not new to him because that's what Griffin's name would have been.)."

Now, first of all, I'm not pregnant. Second of all, we want a number 3 and we do hope to have a little girl some day, but are perfectly content with whichever God blesses us with. SO, you can see how this would have had a little bit of an effect on me.

Okay, now fast forward to Saturday, he tells Dave out of the blue that while he was praying, God spoke to him and told him that Gretchen would be put in Mommy's belly at Christmas.

REALLY???????!!!!!!! What am I supposed to do with this? This child believes with everything that he is that God told him this. SO, I guess we'll find out soon.....even though, I'm not really sure that I'm ready to be in that boat again. Oh well....God can and will do what he pleases!
