This morning we were discussing that Mary has a splinter in her finger and where do splinters come from? I said I would take it out of her finger.
"But how will you take it out?"
Not wanting to make him think it hurts, "I'll use tweezers."
"Tweezers won't be able to get it out of her finger. What else will you use?"
"Well, a needle, honey, I'll use a needle."
That's when John suggested that we don't need to use a needle, that God will heal the splinter instead.
The example from Thanksgiving was even better. I had prepared the uncooked turkey and was about to put it in the oven.
"What is that, Mama?"
"That is a turkey."
"But how did they make a turkey into that?"
Starting with the simplest answer, "They took off the feathers."
"But, Mama, then where is the head?"
"Um, yes, they had to take off the head too."
