God and Aliens



So here was the conversation in the car earlier today:

Me: I think we might go outside a play a little today

Kylie: It's way too windy

Caleb: yeah

Kylie: Jesus prayed and the wind stopped, maybe we can do the same

Me: That would be a great idea

Kylie/Caleb: (indistinct praying) Amen.

Caleb: it's still really windy - maybe God is up too high to hear you

Me: No, God can hear and see you wherever you are and he can hear everyone at the same time - isn't that cool?

Caleb: How can he do that?

Kylie: Maybe he is like an alien and has a thousand eyes and a million ears...

too cute! I love all the pictures. My favorite Caleb saying is still: Mom you have a lot of kids!

A guy that works for us is agnostic, but currious. He was saying that aliens probably planted us here. He says this stuff to get to me! But on this occasion, I said, "Yes, I believe an Alien did plant us here". He looked at me kind of funny, and I continued, "God is an alien. He isn't like us!" Long story short, that got him to thinking!
