Out of the mouths of babes…


Ever dreamed about a time machine and where you might travel should one be invented and you were offered that incredible possibility of time travel? Would you go forward or backward in time? Would you perhaps consider traveling back to the time of Jesus and perhaps join the throngs that followed him about in the heat of the middle east?

This question was posed to me by my twelve year old, Bethany, and I paused; considering this carefully. Would I want to go back to see Jesus in real life and hear his sermons and parables in person? I was about to respond that I would but only on the condition that if I went back it would be with the knowledge of who Jesus was because what if in my very humanness I fell in with the lot of the pharisees and did not believe? How horrible would that be?

But before I could answer her Bethany replied herself. “I would be really tempted to go back and see Jesus but since God did not deem that I was to be born in that time – I don’t think it’s my place to send myself back there.”

What more is there to say to that? It certainly trumped my answer!

Tomorrow is Emma’s appointment please keep it in your prayers. (This is a pre-scheduled post so no news is available on Emma’s condition at the time that I wrote the post.)
