Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

Mouths of Babes Monday

Angela from Unexpected Art had this creative idea to post funny things your children have said.  This fits right in line for so much of what has been going on in my life because 1) My children say funny/shocking things every day, and 2) My Internet service has been sketchy at best so I don’t have much time to post anything before it crashes again.

(Coincidentally if I don’t respond to your comments or questions, this is why!)

So the other day, Sue, who recently turned 3, was tucked neatly and safely in her Britax car seat in the back of the van.  She’s usually fairly quiet back there, which is understandable given the mahem and messes her brothers generally create.

On this particular day, however, they were quietly absorbed in connecting multiple fast food straws together in order to make an extra-long spitball shooter.

So loud and clear her tiny voice rings:

“If God has all that “powah” and all, Mommy, does he really need Jesus?”


There is so much key theology in that simple question.

I just laughed, looked up at God and prayed something like “Ok, another child who is going to ask questions like this.  All righty, then, I’m game!”

I never thought so much about the Mystery of the Trinity until I had children.

That says a lot.

LOL. That is awesome. I LOVE trying to explain God-stuff to my kids (“trying” being the operative word). The nephew of a friend of mine once asked if “God had feet.” My heart melted right then and there.

I’m with you here! Daniel has asked me some things that only God Himself can answer. Yet I was the mommy who was supposed to know!

That’s sweet. I’m praying God will give me wisdom when these questions start coming my way!

Kids are amazing sometimes. They ask questions that we would never think to ask. My son asks them all the time and I really don’t have the aswers but since I am mom I am supose to.

Ah, the God questions. It’s so hard to explain the abstract when they want the concrete! I remember a year or so ago when my son thought our priest was God:)

What a great question! My little boy always tells me he wants Jesus to come over and “play toys”. I love their perspectives!

Wow, what a smart little girl. Actually, this is a pretty darn good question, one that I have never pondered myself. Good luck answering it!
