We finished reading our nightly bible story with Jaden about Adam and Eve being removed from the Garden of Eden. Next came a quick recap and our even prayers. Just before going to bed Jaden had something to share with us. Here is how it went.
“Excuse me. Can I tell you guys something?” asked Jaden.
“Sure Jaden, go ahead,” replied Diana.
“When we go back to the Garden of Eden, I am bringing a saw,” he stated. Curious, both Diana and I wondered where this was going. The only way to find out was to ask.
“Okay Jaden,” I said, “why are you going to bring a saw?”
Jaden responded, “because when we get back to Eden I am going to cut down that tree!”
We burst into laughter, which he followed up with, “so when we go to heaven, remember to pack a saw.” Got to love the mind of a child. Makes me smile just thinking of that moment.
