Dad, just IN CASE you wondered – that question was just a general question. It is the sort of thing that trips some people up about God/Christianity and I like to get as many explanations from solid, mature Christians whom I respect as possible when the subject sort of arises.

[Honesty check: Sometimes that sort of thing trips me up, too – not so that I doubt God, but even worse, so that I just don’t want to follow along because it is temporarily painful. Sometimes I would almost abandon my soul if it would guarantee me and those around me an easy life now. Eternity and Hell seem so unreal right NOW. πŸ™‚ πŸ™ ] [And then there are the times when I wish life was much harder, because it seems like life would be easier to understand if it was simple life-or-death stakes all the time; survival. Daily hunting, foraging, war, etc. Ah, it seems so romantic to a 21-st century American.] πŸ™‚

The other day, Nessa emphatically declared that she does not want a CAT; she wants a DOG. I didn’t bother to tell her that they don’t have to be exclusive. Right now she is still very much enjoying her tadpoles-turned-frog (or toad – we aren’t sure, yet). Jesse set them up in an old tub we have in our Florida Room. We’ll have to post pics sometime. Also of the baby fish. Five survived and are so cute!

By the way, Kevin, no one was worried about you becoming a gambler. πŸ˜‰
