Our 3 year old Charly has been asking a lot lately about marriage. Mostly, "how am I going to be married?" and "who is going to marry me?" Well, tonight she asked again. It went something like this:
Charly: "Why did Jesus die on the cross?"
Rob: "Well, he took our place Charly. We all make mistakes, and so. . ."(interrupted)
Charly: "How am I going to be married?"
Rob: "Well, I don't know, but God knows."
Charly: "Who is goin to be?
Haley: "We don't know, but we could pray for him. God knows who he is"
Charly: "Why can't he tell us?"
Haley: "Well, sometimes we don't know things. But it's ok because God knows, and we can trust God."
Rob: "We might not know for a long time, but God will let us know when it's time.
So she was satisfied. We prayed for her husband, and we prayed for patience for her while she waits and trusts the Lord.
(Rob comment: Why the freak is my daughter already concerned with her husband!!)
