Made with Love

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Jeff and I both love creating things with our hands.  Jeff is forever working on some sort of DIY project around the house or building something.  I love crocheting, sewing, etc.  As a result, Caleb wants to know how everything is made and who made it.  Sometimes he asks us who made his clothes.  Ummm . . . Target?  A lot times he asks about more random things.  ”Who made the sky?”  This has actually led to some neat conversations about God.

The other day, he was asking who made “those guys, ”  referring to the guys who were mowing the lawns at our complex.  I explained that God makes people and gives them to Mommies and Daddies as little babies.  We talked about how Ethan had grown in my tummy until he was ready to come out as a tiny newborn.  We also talked about how kids grow until one day they will be grown-ups.  Caleb has been fascinated lately by thinking of things he will do when he is a grown-up.  The list includes touching the ceiling, having a wife, and shaving.

Today at lunch he was looking at his arms as he moved them around and bent them.  I asked him what he was doing.  His response was, “I think God took lots of pieces of wood and rolled them up to make my arms.”

It was all I could do to not start laughing.  I love watching him try to figure out how this world works!
