imageWhen I get to heaven, I know exactly what I plan to ask God:

What, in Sam Hill, were you thinking when you decided that free will was a good idea?

This question has been percolating in my mind ever since I became a mom, and my kids reached the stages when they started to make more and more choices for themselves.

Every choice from the minor ones, like what they will wear?

to more major ones, like whether to use drugs or alcohol, as minors?

has led me back to that theological question that I plan to take to Creator of all.

I think any of us, who are parenting pre-teens, teen or adults, looks back to the younger years when we simply told our kids what to do (and they did it), then shakes our heads at the Almightly.

Then there are those moments when the choices they make, on their own, are good ones.

Remember back to when your kids were little, and they couldn’t wait to wrap their arms around your neck? Remember when you would come home to little ones waiting at the door for you? Remember when a look, or gesture would stop that little one in their tracks, and they would do what was right. What a sweet time of life!

As they get older it is clear that the sun, moon and stars no longer revolve around us.

But, when those young ladies and man-children

make a good choice, on their own …

or wrap their adult arms around us, and whisper that they love us …

on their own free will!

Now that is love worth having!

May God knew what he was doing after all?

(but, I am still going to ask him)
