Knowing some of my readers are kidless and do not appreciate cute kid stories, I usually don't share personal stories of the things my children say and do. I mean, aren't all children precocious, saying and doing things no one but relatives would find charming.
Anyway, I am writing this as much for my remembrance as for readership. Driving home on Saturday evening, the kids were in the back holding rocks they had received at school. Kristi asked about the rock and was told by Aedan that he was given his rock by a teacher. When asked why, he explained that he had been told "God was a rock."
Kristi attempted to explain this concept to the children. However, she was interrupted by Gillian who told us, in no uncertain terms, that "God was not a rock!"
"Why is God not a rock?" asked Kristi. Because, "God is not hard," Gillian responded... "he is not soft, God is a person."
