Seeing God in my Kids

Jacob showed me God a few weeks ago...

We were reading a book together about Easter. He sighed and said "Mommy, I can't wait to die." I turned to him and smiled and asked him "you mean you can't wait to meet Jesus in heaven?" He said "yeah." I went to explain that it would probably be a long time before he goes to heaven, and that by then several of his family members would already be there to meet him.

I was struck by his complete lack of fear. What a gift; no wonder Jesus talked about having faith like that of a child.
