This morning I was getting ready in the bathroom just doing my hair and putting pins in it and Hanah looked over at my necklace that was laying there of the locket. She comments frequently about it, but not as much as today. She was just staring at it and then she asked,

Hanah- "Is this your Mom?"
Danielle- "Yup! It is"
Hanah- "Did God kill your Mom?"
Danielle- thought awhile and then said "No, He didn't, he just took her home"
Hanah- "Oh..."
Danielle- "My Mom was very sick, and so he decided to take her home to heaven with Him"
Hanah- "My Grandma was sick and God drove her home too"
Danielle- "Your right Hanah, now my Mom and your Grandma are together"

I then started to put on my necklace and I told her that I wear it everyday to remember my Mom and to "keep her close to my heart" sort of. And she replied with saying..."That's where God is, in our hearts!"

I know this short conversation might not mean much to all of you, but Hanah made me think a lot and taught me some too. Not that I ever thought God KILLED my Mom but I have looked at it as more of a punishment. But today, after thinking of Hanah's grandma dying so recently and just reasons why it could happen, I think the reason can be simple. God wanted my Mom with Him, just like he wanted Hanah's grandma. My Mom was sick...very sick, and now she isn't anymore. She is in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Revelation 21:4 "He (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes. And death will be no more. Neither will morning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

It's funny how sometimes the best theology comes from the mouths of children too young to hide God behind doctrine. :-)

Hey Danielle! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've kept in tune with your blog for quite some time. I enjoy reading it. My Mom also has gone home to be with the Lord a little over a year and a half ago. I have a heart locket that I wear with my Mom's picture in it too...a friend gave it to me. Seems like we have a lot in common...!;)
