Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

A few days ago the boys & I met some friends at a nearby church playground.  Very close to the playground is part of the church's cemetary, so as we were waiting for the others to arrive I started to wander near the headstones and reading the names and dates.  Soon the boys were following me, this is the conversation we had...

Sam  What are all these?
Me    This is a cemetary, and these are graves.
Sam  What are they for?
Me    Well, when people die this is where their bodies are buried.
Sam  Oh...(thinking) When I die will you bury me in the ground?
Me    ummmm

In this moment many thoughts pass quickly through my mind, the prominent thought is a 4 year old waking up in the middle of the night having a nightmare about being buried in the ground.  Nope, I did not want to go there! So I said...

Me   Oh, you don't have to think about that right now.
Sam Why?  (of course he would have to say that!)
Me  Because you are not going to die for a long long time
Sam Oh, okay

Meanwhile, Ben had been listening to all this and at this moment he said..

Ben  So they plant people in the ground when they die.

All I could do was laugh!
