"Mrs. God"

Kathy Dingus



My five year old son asked me a very serious question the other evening as we sat at the dining room table.

"Mom, if God is our Fadder... then who is our Mudder? (As you may have noticed, he has a problem pronouncing his "th" sounds. I suppose I could work a little harder with him in practicing his "th" sounds, but I personally think it sounds to cute and he is growing up so fast. I know, I know, I need to do better!)

I thought and thought about a good way to explain the concept of the "church" as our mother when he interrupted my adult ramblings.

"I know, Mom! It's Mrs. God!" Now how can you argue with that?
