Recently, we were all sitting around the dinner table together(eating dinner….imagine that), when out of nowhere, Abigail asks us, “when you die how do you get to Jesus?“
Now, this is something that I know has been on her mind and heart a lot recently because she has been asking all sorts of probing questions. Just things like, dying, heaven, God, the trinity. HUGE concepts for a little mind and heart, but things that we talk about as openly and straight forward as we possibly can.
So, when this direct little question cropped up during dinner, we seized the opportunity to explain more about how we have a body + a soul and if you believe in Jesus and that He died for your sins then when your body dies your soul will get to go to heaven to be with Him. And we told her about some of our different family members that we know are already in heaven with Jesus or who we know will be there someday.
And she was quiet for a minute.
And she thought.
Then she said,
“Well. When I die and go to heaven and you and Daddy are there, I’m going to call my Grammy and have her send seahorse to meet Jesus.”
And to that I simply said, “You know what, baby? I think that is a great plan.”
