A God Moment

The other night at dinner we were eating as we normally do when all of the sudden Caley and Blake started asking us questions.
- who made the sun?
- how did God make the sky?
- how did he make the animals?
- how did he make the ocean?
- how did he make people?
- how did he know how to make everything?
- why did he do all that?

So David and I are trying to answer their questions so that they can understand the wonderful God that we have. Hopefully they understood our answers. The next morning which was yesterday before I was reading Proverbs 3 before church. (Our church has being reading through the Proverbs this summer each day of the corresponds to one Proverb) Anyway in Proverbs 3:19 it says:

"The LORD made the earth, using his wisdom.
He set the sky in place, using his understanding.
With his knowledge, he made springs flow into rivers
and the clouds drop rain on the earth."
I think that it is so great that even when we as parents don't know all the answers God will continually show them to us if we are faithful to him. Although I don't think my kids would understand this verse right now. I know what to tell them in the future when they ask these questions.
