David's Deep Thoughts

David tend to think deep and share his thoughts while I'm in the car alone with him. Either driving him to his "tutoring" at Grandma Mullens house or on the way to Webelo Scouts. I guess he doesn't have much opportunity to talk to me uninterrupted except when we are driving around, just the two of us.
So last night on the way to Cub Scouts he's asking about the Ressurection. This is a subject that always fascinates him. He asks about the animals, hair etc. This conversation went a little different. Here it is.
D- "So mom, when we ressurect when is that going to happen?"
Me" Well we dont' know when, but when Jesus Comes Again he will call out and all the people will ressurrect, but not necessarily at the same time."
D-"what if I'm still alive then?"
Me," Well then your body will change in a "twinkling of an eye" is what the scriptures say."
D-"I wonder how that will feel"
Me'"I don't know"
D-"so will we still be able to have children after the ressurection?"
Me-"Hmm, I guess so- but I don't know"
D-"I see a flaw in the plan then."
Me'"what's the flaw mr. David?"
d-"well if nobody is ever going to die, yet we still have children, eventually the earth will run out of room"
Me-"Wow david I never thought about that."
And I was struck dumb for a spell.
David never ceases to amaze me the depth that he can think at his young age of ten. He's a real blessing and I'm glad to be his mom.

What a smarty! I love those moments when you see that your kids really are taking things in, thinking about them and wondering. He's a gift, for sure.

He is a deep thinker. Good for him. I'm sure his thoughts make you think harder everyday. Enjoy the rides with him, what a great boy.

What a cute boy, and what a cute post.

Off topic, I started laughing when I read "Webelo." I forgot all about Webelos! Any why do I find that word funny? Is this making ANY sense?

Anyway.... cute post. :)

I miss David. Can you send him to live with me for awhile? Give him a hug or let him play an extra game on the Wii for us!

I never would have thought of it that way what a deep thinker.

He is a deep thinker. That much thinking would hurt my brain. Austin's full of questions too, but much simpler ones and I can still satisfy him with "because that's the way God wants it". :)
Good luck with that guy.

I love times in the car when you can talk like that, no matter who it is. You are a great mom!
