Mark had just fallen down and was still recovering from the shock of the slip (no boo boo, just shocked, he landed on his bottom).
He sat down next to Julia and I said, "Mark you don't need to be upset, God protected you."
To which he looked over at Julia and asked, "Where is God?"
Julia answered, "You can't see him, buddy, He's in heaven!"
To which I said, "You are absolutely right Julia, we can't see God, but we know He is all around us and that He loves and protects us."
Every day I hear conversations between Mark and Julia that blow me away. Julia is such a sweet sister. She is always nurturing and loving on her brother, sometimes, he asks her to stop because she hugs him so much, and she says, "Mom I can't help it, he's just so cute." And you know what, she's right. I can't blame her at all.
I always wondered how Julia and Mark would get along. They are 17 months apart and best friends. Julia is the happy older sister, and Mark is just at peace in her presence.
