Son: Did you see that?!
Then grasping that a teachable moment was also crossing our path--
Me: Do you notice how you can't see the wind, but you can see what the wind does?
Me: Well, that's how God is--you can't see God, but you can see what he does. It's like God is invisible like the wind.
Son: But God isn't invisible.
Me: What do you mean? Can you see God?
Son: He lives in our hearts, that's why you can't see him
Me: Oh. Hmm. Good point.
Pauses a moment, then curious as to what he'll say to this one:
Me: And what does God do in our hearts?
Immediately, and in a very matter-of-fact "of course" sort of way:
Son: He makes things better.
Huh. Teachable moment indeed.
