I can always tell when Addie is being contemplative in the back of the car. Her eyes narrow, she mumbles a bit to herself and stares out the window. She grows quiet, and then it starts…
Mom? How does Jesus make babies?
Well, there are spirits up in heaven and when a baby is put in a mom’s belly Jesus puts the spirit in the baby. Then the baby is born.
So, where’s the spirit?
It’s inside you.
Can you see it?
So you’re telling me a spirit is like a firework that sparkles on the inside?
Yes. Yes I am.
