Sometimes 4-yr-olds encounter disappointment. I've been trying to help Emma deal with it by explaining that God's plans are often different than ours, but that He loves us, and His plan is perfect and what's best for our lives.
So yesterday, as we were getting in the car she noticed the fresh dusting of snow on the ground.
Emma: Mom! It snowed again! What is God doing?!
Me: I don't know...
Emma: I guess he's doing my plan, now.
Emma and her cousin Camden, in town from Texas for the long weekend. I didn't go skiing with them but Donnie said that she never got upset or angry when she couldn't ski as well as she hoped. I'm a proud momma.
