A Question from a Son to His Father...

While cuddling with his father, our six year old son Samuel had a pressing question come to mind.

Samuel: Dad, if you could only pick one son and had to choose between me and God, who would you pick?

Dad: Why that's an easy one Samuel.

Samuel: It is? Who would you pick Dad?

Dad: I would pick you son.

Samuel: You would?!? You'd pick me over God?

Dad: Of course I would. It wouldn't be any fun having God as a son. He already knows everything. I couldn't teach him to throw a ball or teach him how to play baseball like I get to teach you. I would definitely pick you Samuel.

Samuel: (Toothless grin from ear to ear)

That is precious. I was wondering as I was reading how Paul would answer this - he did great! Where do kids come up with some of their questions?

This is a cease and desist blog comment. Your brother is requesting that you cease and desist all extremely heart warming blogs about your children because he is going through a very strong "parent" stage and I just can't take it anymore!

love, Uncle George
