In Heaven

Posted by Mandy at 8:34 PM
Some of my favorite conversations that I will ever have with Madison must be occuring now, at age 5. Her topic of interest lately has been Heaven and God. I've finally gotten her over the fear she had at age 4 of dying, and HAVING to go be in Heaven without us, and being terrified of God. (long story.. another day lol) Now she is so excited about God and all that goes with him. Today, on our way to dance/tumbling class, we were listening to one of our million kid's cds and it happened to be one about dinosaurs. Before one of the songs the singers asks, "What do you think happened to the dinosaurs?" Madison's responce, which I thought was oh so smart (of course) was, "Mommy, I think the TRex ate ALL of the other dinosaurs.. and then he died because he was all out of food." So matter of factly she states this to me... and I tell her, "Maybe, no one really knows."
Madison: "God knows, he knows everything."

Me: "Yes, God knows."

Madison: "Maybe when we get to heaven we can ask him and he'll tell us."

Me: "Sure, I bet we can ask him!"

Madison: "Will there be roads in heaven? How will we get to God?"

Me: "The Bible says there are streets of gold in heaven... cool hu?"

Madison: "Woah, yeah! Can we drive our van on them?"

Me: "Umm.. I have no idea if there are cars in heaven. We might just have to walk..or maybe ride a horse."

Madison: "Or maybe a donkey..."

Me: "Why a donkey?" (almost laughing.. thinking this is random!)

Madison: "Well, Mary rode on a donkey when she and Joseph went to have Jesus.. so I bet God likes donkeys."

Hilarious! I was the same way when I was younger though, afraid of going to heaven without my family. I remember laying with my dad in mom and dad's bed one night and crying to him that i didn't want to go to heaven forever. Forever seemed like SO LONG, and I just had visions of all these people dressed up like the people did in our easter cantatas at church, and all we would have to eat would be bread and fish, just like in the bible (yes, I really thought this!). Very traumatic for a young child! But I'm glad madison is over that now. She is too funny!

lol I was the EXACT same way as a child, Rosie.. to be honest, now that I have my own family I get sad thinking of dying before them and 'having' to leave them behind.. even though I'm sure once you're dead you really don't care. lol So I can sympathize with her fears!

Kids are so smart. Don't you wish we still had the insight that children had.
