out of the mouths of babes

my dinner conversation tonight with luke--who recently has had many more deep thoughts and questions about his sister--went something like this:

luke: usually you only have the throwing up sickness for a day or two. but eliza had it for her whole life.
me: well, honey, remember that she didn't throw up all the time because of germs, like when you get sick. remember, it was because her brain didn't work right.
luke: why did God make her brain like that?
me: that's a good question. i don't know the answer, but i wish i did.
luke: maybe He made it that way so she could go to heaven sooner because He wanted her to be with Him.

thanks for the reminder, my sweet boy.
