I was stunned...
I had an early call this morning, so I set the alarm clock at 6am.Before it rang, Liya came over to my bedroom and slipped under cover.She whispered in my ear:"Mommy, is God invisible?"Still half asleep, I asked:"What?"She repeated the question.Now I was fully awake, and surprised:"Invisible? Where did you learn that word?"She said:"I just know, I heard it somewhere. It means you can't see it. So is God invisible?"I hesitated:"Err....yes."She didn't say anything, putting her head on my shoulder, as if lost in thoughts.I was a little worried:"Why did you ask this?"She said:"Because some people say God doesn't exist, because he's invisible."I asked:"Who said that?"She said:"Some kids in school, and daddy."I was going to say something, but found the question profoundly challenging. So I humbled and asked her:"So, what do YOU think?"She hugged me tighter:"Mommy, it's okay if God wants to be invisible. Love is invisible too, but I know you love me. I just know it."I kissed her on her forehead, feeling so blessed to have her as my daughter.............What a wonderful way to start a Monday!!!!
