Sean is philosphizing about Heaven today---here are some excerpts:
Sean: Is there food in heaven?
Erin: Yes....anything you want to eat...
The resulting interview (I am questioner, Sean's answers):
Q: If you could have one thing for dinner in Heaven what would it be?
A: Hamburger, with ketchup and mustard and a bun on the side and lettuce on the side.
Q: What about dessert?
A: A candy cane for dessert.
Q: If you could have one thing for breakfast in Heaven what would it be?
A: Oatmeal with blackberries and cinnamon.
Q: What about lunch in Heaven?
A: Blackberry oatmeal with cinnamon.
Q: If you could play one thing in Heaven, what would you play?
A: I would play Lightning McQueen Cars with Dad. No, I would play it with God. And Jesus.
Q: If you could talk with one person in Heaven, who would it be?
A: I would sit with Annalisa and she would talk.
(Sean's Question: Are there books in Heaven?):
Q (Erin): What book would you read in Heaven?
A: Tales from Radiator Springs. We saw it at Costco.
(Sean: Can I write really big words in Heaven and read really big words I can't read now?)
Q: What Saint would you like to meet in Heaven?
A: I'm not sure. I'd like to meet St. Brendan.
Back to Sean's questions:
-Can God read what you are writing right now?
-How did Jesus get in Mary's belly? Well, how did God put him there if God wasn't born yet? Are God and Jesus two different people? Do they look different? Is Heaven in the middle of the sky?
-Does God have a computer he can write things on?
Q: If you had one question for God, what would you ask him?
A: How can you fix the volume on this toy?
Earlier today we took Annalisa to her 4-month well check. In the car on the way there Sean said:
"I need to tell Dr. McGaha (our pediatrician) that I hear God talk to me in my heart sometimes."
Sure enough, we (I say "we" because he made me tell Dr. McGaha about hearing the voice of God) did tell our doctor, to which he had a very good response, "That is so special Sean. And you know it is God because he always tells you to do good things." Well put. Glad he didn't suspect pediatric schizophrenia due to the voices.
Sean also asked in the car today: "Why can we eat apples if God told Eve not to?" Great question.
I love his wonder, curiosity, search, and innocence. I love that he is naturally inclined to find the truth. I love that he thinks. I love him. How do I preserve these qualities as he grows up?!
