Last night as I was laying in bed with Alanna, we had a conversation full of deep thoughts.
A: Mom, I've been thinking about some stuff...
Me: Okay, like what?
A: Well, I know there is a God team and a Devil team, and I know that God always wins...but HOW does he win? Does God kick the devil or pinch him or what?
Me: Well, the Bible tells us that at the mention of the name of Jesus, the Devil and all his demons run away.
A: Mom, that is SO interesting!
Me: It is! We can just say the name of Jesus. His name is very powerful and we don't have to be afraid!
A: Right! And no one can take us out of His hand, right?
Me: Yep! We are safe inside of His hand!
A: So it's kind of like God is the shell and we are the snail, right? The shell protects us and we can go inside if we get afraid.
Me: Now THAT is interesting!
This girl is a thinker. She thinks things over and really tries to understand them. I'm pretty sure she gets that from her daddy. =)
